Lou's not a traditional team game kind of person. I think it might be in the genes because neither of his parental families are keen on football, rugby or cricket, those English staples which can prevent kids as they get older going off the rails. So, I'm trying to introduce the type of activities that will hold his attention and will have a good chance of keeping him on the straight and narrow as he grows up. In the last few weeks skateboarding has enthused him big time and I've been so impressed by how the youthful 'dudes' who use skate parks around here are courteous, considerate and helpful to the teeny peeps who scoot,skate and cycle precariously amongst them.
