"Gasp!!!"


Day 2 of Motocross for our boys and both did great but their Mom's nerves are rattled!  Our oldest loves 'catching air' and was pushing hard today!  However, seeing the rider beside your son about to land hard on his front tire and possibly head over the handle bars while your son is right beside gave this Mom quite a few extra grey hairs today!  Needless to say, there were quite a few gasps but sighs of relief as both landed and carried on ...



Our youngest loves the 'straight-aways' and although he is more cautious with the jumps, he too, was starting to catch some pretty good air today!  If he keeps riding the way he is, it will only be a matter of time that he too, makes his Mom gasp and instantly sprout grey hairs!

    yes, hard to see our children doing things we find risky
    but they find pleasure in.

  2. Gasp is right! I can't even stand to watch the jumpers when they come to the Stampede, and I don't even know the kids! My favourite is your first shot, gorgeous colours, great landscape and of course, sweet jump!

    1. Yup ... I'm not very good at maintaining a 'calm' composure!
