As soon as Charlie got out of school on Friday, they headed down to Theilman for a weekend of dirt bike riding. Charlie is getting pretty good at it, and will be in his first competition in just a couple of weeks. And I am just praying that all of his bones stay unbroken.
I know many think I am nuts to encourage him to do this sport, as it can be a very injury laden activity. But he is learning from the best (the broken collarbone and two broken feet Mike has experienced shall not be mentioned here...) and he is a very careful rider. That being said, I always send his insurance card along with Mike, for that first emergency room visit.
