My boys, John 11 and Sam 6, and I set a resolution to skateboard everyday in 2010. So far so good. We have only 350 days left. We go wheels down before school to erase the possibility that we would forget after school. Already one or both of them have come out of their bedrooms late at night asking if we skateboarded that day or not. We haven’t missed yet. John and I went 65 days in a row last summer. But a year is a long time and things are going to be tricky when I have to do some traveling. One thing I am thinking about is that I have been ordained for 7 years and have gotten used to traveling in my blacks (Priest clothes). But, I have yet to travel in my blacks while carrying a skateboard. I can’t wait to overhear some guy in an airport somewhere say, “Well that’s not something you see everyday!”
Here are a couple of short videos to enjoy. The first one is of John putting on pads in my car at the skate park. He will call it the beginning of our documentary but I call it the doctor’s office. The second is of John and Sam both at Skate school this past week. Enjoy!
