A bit Grungy
The day is completely grungy, I am definitely feeling grungy (head cold - yuk and up at 6:30 AM - who knew such a hour existed!! to take Geoff to the airport) and so a grungy Lo was the order of the day. And as I now have a little ripsticking dude in the house, grunge was perfect!
We gave Henry a ripstick for his 8th birthday back in February. We had been told it was easier than skateboarding (I suspect this to be a lie of sorts) and Henry was rapt. First attempts were less than successful, ie clinging on to Mum and Dad and not even looking like balancing. I will admit I thought it would get put away for a while but to his credit he persisted. Mostly indoors, slowly making his way from one piece of furniture to the next. Slowly he built his confidence and now he is incapable of walking from one end of the house to the other, he has to ripstick. It is so very cool.
This particular June day did end in a bit of a disaster when a very helpful dad said "let's see if you can go a bit faster..." and gave him a bit of a push. Home in tears is all I will say...
I have used half of this weeks Sketchy Thursday's sketch.
Off to do the school run now - via one of Meaghan's friends house, they get an extra weeks holiday in winter so Meaghan is mostly home at the moment.
The wind is hideous so shall be blown all over the place. Have a great day wherever you are - and happy 4th of July for my American friends xx
