This Is So You

Got another digi layout for you on this fine Sketchy Thursday. 

Both the kids got inline skates for Christmas.  I was a bit trepidatious giving them to them, especially the girl who's only 5, but they took to them very quickly.  I was impressed.  They obviously didn't inherit mom's terrible sense of balance (although I've always been good on skates - I can bump into a wall while walking but am  perfectly balanced on wheels, go figure).  I guess I shouldn't have been worried about the girl - she can do anything she sets her mind to and she's determined to keep up with her brother...and does, VERY well.

The boy really wanted a skateboard, and I would've obliged except everything has to be equal for Christmas and there was no way I was going to give a skateboard to a 5-y-o, athletic or not.  But, as mentioned, he took to skating very quickly.  It's so cool.  Now I just gotta break mine out and go skating with them. 

The journaling on the layout refers to the fact that the boy doesn't usually take on new activities until he's sure in his mind he will be able to do them.  He studies and thinks first and by the time he finally actually does something, he's usually a pro within minutes. 

This layout is based on the sketch I made for today's Sketchy Thursday challenge.

Have a great day!!!
