Just before Christmas Amelie announced that she wanted a skateboard. I briefly looked into getting her one for Christmas but I didn’t know what I was buying and after discussing it with Michael we decided against it. Then someone told me about a local indoor skate park that does beginner lessons. Initially I booked her in for one lesson – ever since she has been totally hooked. It is a bit of a rush straight from school once a week and I have to try and juggle childcare for Harriet or drag her along with us (which I am not convinced is the best place to try and give her her tea).
Last week I brought her her own gear. I am pleased we tried it out and went to the skate park first. They have got all the gear and she is learning the basics in a controlled environment. I can not believe my little girl is big enough to go skateboarding. She looks so cute decked out in her gear.
