A peek at our summer fun...

My son has taken a huge interest in getting into dirtbike racing..so we have been at the practice track every weekend this summer. We have a couple of acres here at the house but just not the same. He has been on a four wheeler since he was 4 and then advanced to a dirt bike when he was 9...but now we are on to the racing bikes! Yikes..this is not a mom's first choice for her son..but how can you say no when he eats and breaths it! He has been building a track out our backyard for a month and 1/2.....he is ready to go! He worked all last summer to buy this little baby...he rides, then he has to wash and wax for the next 2 hours! Bless his heart!

I hope you are enjoying your days with your kids...they are so much fun to watch grow!
Have a wonderful day!

  3. Hi Christine. What great photos. Great for a scrapbook layout. My husband used to do this when he was younger and competed in competitions. He has a road bike now, but doesn't race. It is a great way for your son to have lots of fun and it keeps you fit as well. Donna

  5. Hi Christine, these pictures are amazing, dont know how you cope with him up in the air like that, but I have found out with my 11 year old if you try to stop them they do it behind your back and not always safely, so this way you get to make sure he's ok. have a good rest of the school hols love chris xx

  7. Oh my God! What great photos, but I can imagine you are not so happy about it. But if he really enjoys it it is great to see he takes so much effort in it! Cool!

  14. I would die if I saw Austin jump that high. Not quite sure how you watch it. I know you worry sick about him getting hurt in hockey, how do you watch this. He sure must be the best dressed out there, lol. Way to go Justin.
