What a great day!!! We have our two youngest grandsons here from Ohio while Mom and Dad celebrate their tenth anniversary on a well-deserved trip. This house and the land is made for little boys! Tonight was a momentous event. Our seven year old, Teddy, took his first solo kayak ride.
With Boppa and little brother as the "pilot boat", I loaded Teddy into a kayak and gave him a push off of the dock.
It took a bit of trial and error.....
but in a suprisingly short time, he was circling the lake like a pro.
Teddy is an excellent swimmer and takes direction well. He's used to boats and has water sports in his DNA. He was a total natural.
Here's the flotilla!
Owen is just the right size to stick in the cargo space and he thinks he's the captain of the regatta!
How does a kid feel when he masters a new endeavor?
