It's Stilt Day!
I made some stilts for the guys to play with, thus to challenge their balance and coordination whilst getting them off of my computer for awhile! Here are the resulting pics.


Evan (11) was first.

Now, it was hard for me to put these up because I am not happy with the way I look, but I did it anyway because, at least right now, it's who I am and I'm not going to miss life while waiting for changes.




Hey! Look who was back today! I told the boys if he sticks around we'll have to name him!


Now it's Josh's (6) turn.


No! Not like that! Do it like this!
Not my proudest moment.


Evan's already proficient on his own.


Josh would rather climb trees.

Those stilts are awesome! And adjustable too, I see :)
Wheee, what fun!

They did turn out pretty well, didn't they? I decided I would only make a second pair if both boys reeeally liked them. We'll see!

You are the coolest Dad. :o)

Thank you so much! Sometimes I try harder than others, and it is the times that I haven't tried as hard that motivate me, you know? It fits with my personal theme:

More than this.

I really appreciate the compliment.

I know it can be hard, but that's so important. Plus, your friends don't care how you think you look... we care about you, and we like you sharing pics of your life! (And yeah, I'm using the royal we... I'm that sure no one disagrees with me.)

Thanks for the encouragment. Really, I'm not supposed to care what anyone else thinks about how I look. And truthfully, it isn't that so much as it's that *I* don't like how I look, so I don't want to "show off" to anyone else either.

But then, there's that whole "not doing anything about it" rut, so, it's post anyway, or maybe never post! Meh, whatever.

Those stilts are so cool. And you even tried them! Go Dad. :) You and Larry look very much alike. :)

Poor Larry. ;-)
