Mr A has become a real action man of late, he loves exploring, jumping, climbing and taking measured risks. He enjoys nothing more than whizzing around the park on his bike and even though he is not quite of his training wheels yet, when we came across this BMX park he was over the moon and couldn't wait to try it out. We spent a few hours here, watching him race up and down the bike mounds and it made me think about what sport he may do in the future. I always did a lot of sport in my youth, mainly swimming, Judo and diving as well as hockey and netball and I want to pass that enthusiasm to my sons. We have already enrolled him in some swimming lessons and have made sure to get the proper sporting equipment.
Back to the BMX track and I was really surprised at how brave he was and he very quickly took to going over the smaller bumps and down around the paved ramp. We encourage any sporting interests he has and have since returned to the park and with each time he is going that little bit higher and faster. Even when he falls down he gets back up again, which is a great lesson in life. He always keeps us on our toes and together we love spending time outdoors in the fresh air.
