WORDFUL & WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

My son, Daniel decided he finally liked skateboarding! It's not that he didn't before, it's just he never really tried it.

The youth pastor gave my eldest son a skateboard a long time ago and it just sits in his closet. Well, my husband told my Daniel (my almost 7 year old) to bring it to church Friday night, and as you can see, he caught on pretty quick....until the little "oops" at the end!

And no worries, he was totally fine! Just like the trooper he is, he got right up and went for it again!

Be sure to visit 5 Minutes For Mom for more Wordless Wednesday, and 7 Clown Circus for Wordful Wednesday.

lol...only because he is okay though! Great video!

Michelle said...

Ouch! I should show you my daughters wounds from skateboarding barefooted in shorts. Not a pretty sight!

I'm glad he was ok, because my laughing at his fall would have been very inappropriate........ :)

I am so glad you told us he was ok - I was worried there!!

How fun! Colin has a skateboard, but rarely uses it!

I tried to view the video but for some reason it wasn't working for me. Just wanted to say Happy WW anyway.

Looks like fun! I'm glad he was okay after that tumble though!

Cool video! I am glad he did not get hurt! You better get him a helmet!! Just in case!
Have a ♥Lovely♥ WW!

Glad he's okay. :) I remember begging my dad for a skateboard because my cousins had one; he got me a pair of roller skates instead, because he thought they were "safer." Not quite the same thrill, though. Haha!

I'm glad he was ok when he fell.

When I was young, skateboards were HUGE!!!

Whew! That fall - glad to know he's OK! I've got some skateboarders over here, too! Just wait til he learns to do those freaky board flip tricks! I've had to stop looking or watching - it takes my breath away how dangerous it looks!

Pam said...

That's great! I used to love skateboarding, but now I am afraid I would break something! lol

Staci said...

wow! Is this what I have to look forward to?

Genny said...

What a trooper!

Love your blog! So pretty.

Chris said...

Lol, I remember doing that when I started skateboarding

Jane Anne said...

We have a skateboard gathering dust in the garage. My oldest had to have it but he is too timid to actually use it. I imagine one of his younger brothers will have a blast with it one day. Great video! Glad he was okay- knowing that, the fall is pretty funny.

Stop by my blog - I am advertising a friend's giveaway: Like Mother Like Daughter

Boys are so cool! Happy WW to you!

Cascia said...

Never give up! Cute video.

Stefany said...

Scary! I would make him wear a helmet (but I am a mean mommy) and that is why my son won't ride a skateboard. He doesn't want to wear one! I am glad your kiddo is okay!

homeschoolceo said...

He did catch on quickly! Funny, my 7 year old recently took an interest in skateboarding as well.

He & Me + 3 said...

He went out flat. So glad he is ok. That made me suck in a deep breath. Good grief helmet and butt pad please. Yikes:)

Brenda said...

He looks like a natural!

Jennifer said...

LOL, I'm so afraid to watch kids get on skate boards! I always imagine them face planting! *sigh* I'll have to get over it eventually, since I'm sure my son will want to try it in the future, but thanks to your video, I'm that much closer to not sweating every time there's a child and a skateboard next to each other! ;-)

~Sandy~ said...

wow! now that is talent :O) keep up the good work! thanks so much for stopping by and Happy WW!!!

Sue said...

He was going pretty fast.He did a good job.

My son is into it off and on too! Keep practicing.

Happy WW~

Jenni Jiggety said...

Look at him go!

And I love that song! Ain't Nobody...I'll be singing that now!

Helene said...

I actually gasped out loud when he fell off the skateboard!! Yikes! Glad he was okay! My 4 yr old son is already asking for a skateboard...I don't think my heart can take it!!!

BTW, I love that song that was playing in the background...I haven't heard it in ages!!!!

jenn said...

Love the video. He's pretty good.

Momisodes said...

Aw, he seemed to be doing really well. What a trooper he is :)

Sara Bonds said...

Lisa said...

omgosh, when he fell it was like I was there and gasped with anxiety....I am glad to hear he is okay...kids amaze me if I did that I would probably break a hip or have a badly bruised one....lol
