Fresh Passion and the Exuberance of Youth

At this point, I have lost track of how many different little phases Alexander has gone through, being interested in climbing one week and fire-fighting the next.  But about 6 weeks ago, he got his first skateboard.  This was the first time that he has fully immersed himself into a particular pursuit.  He is at the skatepark almost every day now, and his intensity on the skateboard is contagious.  Watching him concentrate and push himself is an amazing experience.

The really hardcore skaters drink milk.

This happens a lot.

Working on the ollie.  It's only a matter of time.

I am not sure why this dude was wearing a pink mini-skirt and heading into the restroom at the Ocoee, but he is now on the internet wearing a pink mini-skirt.
