Michael took delivery of his first skateboard, yesterday. Today we went down to the river to practice.

His first steps were tentative, but after a couple of hours, and some tutoring from a couple of neighbourhood boys, he was much more comfortable. The Mutant-Ninja-Turle-style pillow strapped to the back was his idea — he was worried about falling and hurting his back.
