here's a few pics from a couple of weeks ago - we'll be back there again tomorrow afternoon....
in 1st place!
watch out, here I come!
Want to see a picture of you Mairead on Jamies bike.
Those are some really tiny and itty bitty bikes.
Goodness! I'm afraid it looks a bit dangerous to me! Good that they have those helmets. They look pretty substantial. They do seem to be having a good time, Mairead.
I thought I saw some safety equipment peeking out from under the jacket. I'm sure they are fine, Mairead! But you know me by now. If I can't worry, I'm not breathing right, ya' know?
How long have they been racing?
I think one of Dawn's brothers used to do motorcycle racing too.
Yepper. That sounds like the boys I know! LOL. I grew up in an area where tinkering on cars was the "thing" for teen boys to do. And some teen girls! LOL. Drove my parents mad. That was back in the days when ice covered the earth... and cheap used cars were plentiful (and of the sort that could actually be worked on-you know, pre computer days! ).
Not a thing wrong with them learning how things work. Does make an awful clutter though, doesn't it? Whew!
Gosh, I'd rather they were doing that than...well, any number of naughty things they could be getting up to and it gets them out of the house rather than sitting around all day.
Oh, and we have a couple of mopeds/scooters for Jamie to work on and sell, and a decent one in the garage for when he's 16. He and his friends have already planned that he'll take his bike test on his 16th then they'll all go out for a ride. They'll be 16 already so will have taken their tests before him. yikes!
You should see the colour of their hands every day - blacker than black!
