KneeBoarding History

 
We spent some time, Sunday, on the lake with our neighbor's daughter and her family. The kids were wakeboarding and kneeboarding. Lidia and Sawyer have been kneeboarding before, but today, Lidia made history. She crossed the wake for the first time! Holla! 
 
  
 
 
 
 
Now y'all, that's the face of sheer determination and pride right there. She grinned the whole time. These are the times we live for.....times when our grandchildren experience something for the first time, the times they dig in and not give up no matter how hard the task may be, the pride in their accomplishment and gaining such great confidence......that feeling that they can do anything, if they put their minds to it. Don't you remember those feelings?
 
All I can say is......"Lidia, you go girl!"
 
And talk about faces.....Lordy, they showed us a couple more.
 
Before going home, Monday. Lidia and Sawyer got a little silly.
This is their best impressions of the ever popular......Duck Face.
 

 
HaHa!
 
Love my babies,
Laurie

    1. Thanks, Betsy! At the end, just after I turned the video off, she tried to turn around backwards. She was on a roll. I see lots of kneeboarding happening this summer. I love those silly faces, too! Now, if I could just bottle all that energy. Ha!

  4. CUTE pictures of the kids. Lidia did REALLY good riding the crest of those waves and jumping them. I thought for sure I was going to see a big spill when you said History In The Making. COOL JOB! xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana! She was so proud of herself and was really brave. Just after this video clip, she started trying to turn around backwards. She did take a little spill, then. But I can already see her trying that little trick again, soon.
