The Man and I decided to let The Boy take Makenna's scooter. Reason being is because he's like lightning on the bike since he doesn't use training wheels anymore (and hasn't for a year!). He has only recently learned how to take off from the curb on his own. Stopping? Well, let's just say we hope there aren't any vehicles or brick walls around when he goes to stop. Suffice it to say he hasn't mastered that part yet.
Now the scooter is a different story. It's one of those two-wheeled razr ones that can zip like crazy. And he does. Zip like crazy. The Boy's balance is as sure footed as a mountain goat. He can ride that scooter like nobody's business. You can see our troubled thoughts from here.
Bike-a-Thon day broke and beautiful weather was our friend.
Tennis shoes- check
We picked the boy up at the end of the school day to find that he had gotten a speeding ticket. They have a circular drive-way in front of the school that was closed off for some wheeling fun. That Boy of ours was zipping through "traffic" like crazy. Weaving in and out and having a high time. The "police" brought that to an end and he was issued a citation and put on the curb for a couple of minutes. I can see it all going down. He's just not used to speed traps and going slow. This does not bode well for the future.
The teacher was sweet enough to send a few pictures my way of his fun filled morning. I hope you get a chuckle out of them like I did!
Zipping right along. Leaving three wheeled scooters and bikes with training wheels in the dust. See the police man in the back ground? I think they got a couple of base security to come play along.
Busted. It's cute now, but I better not see this in 12 years.
How sad is this? I bet it was like having a Harley and having it taken away and given a Pinto. No speed. No zip. No style. Still fun, though!
That's how it goes, Internets. Be careful how you zip or you might be given a ford to drive.
