Sawyer riding a skateboard

At open gym on Friday, Sawyer stole one of the boys skateboards like always and wouldn't put it down. Mark had been thinking about ways to safely teach Sawyer how to ride a skateboard down a hill. He has become so comfortable stepping onto the board, like the big kids, it was time to take the next step. We tried a couple different slopes but they didn't hit the spot. Then Mark had a genius idea!!! We put a wedge mat under the floor. That way if he fell he didn't get hurt. It was a great idea! Watch and see how great he did

So what do you think? He's not even two yet! We think it is pretty amazing. The best part of it all is how much he loves it. He is a natural!
