The long awaited event came today for Lea. She was destined to own her first skateboard at age 7 years, 4 months and 2 weeks. As soon as they finished building her board it at the shop and she held it under her arm, her face was transformed with a strange kind of excitement I had never seen on her before. It obviously meant so much to her as a significant stage in her development and she could not wait to get home and start her new found love of wheels and tricks. It never ceases to amaze me how your child can grow into something completely different to what you envisioned or imagined and they never stop surprising you…
