bonus shot: skater girl

Alex informed Marcus a while ago that she wanted to learn to skateboard, and on Friday, she stressed that she was very serious about this.  So today, Marcus took her out and bought her a skateboard, a helmet and some pads.

Ten minutes in the driveway, and girlie was up.  And she could not. be. more. thrilled.

She'll be a gnarly shredder in no time.

(Do the youth say "gnarly shredder"?)

SongDeterminate by Lemonade Mouth.  Alex picked this song.  I had never ever heard it before, to say even less about the band.  But Alex informs me it's on a Disney CD that she has, and it's her new favourite song. Two questions:  (a) who knew? and (b) when did my kid turn into a teenager?
