End of year bits and pieces – Skating Away

Taken in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico.  How they could go down the street on skateboards while carrying snacks and drinking some water is beyond me.  I can’t even stand on one of the things 😉

    While our youth rank at the bottom on their standardized test scores, they are top-notch skateboarders.

    I am jealous of those free-wheeling dudes. Happy New Year!

    My son is an avid skateboarder. I have no idea how they do the things that they do!! They seem to get a bad rap, but he pairs his skating with being an honor student and taking college credit pre-calculus as a sophomore in high school.

      Congrats on your wonderful son! I can’t even do ice skates let alone something like this 😉

        Thank you. And me either! The one time I stepped on it- it flew out and I landed on my elbow! 🙂

    Just being around teenagers makes me feel old now. Watching them at a skatepark — which I love to do — makes me feel downright ancient. I have no idea how they do practically everything that they do. Well, there is the falling. I do understand that part all too well.

      And I understand 110% the not wanting to fall! I’ve broken a couple of bones and that is enough for me.
