Smart Mouth Broad said...

That's really cool. I have to wonder how you took the pictures with you hands covering your eyes though. At least mine would have been. LOL

Just B said...

totally awesome, dude! (since I'm not the one standing by ready to drive to the emergency room)

Debbie said...

I hope you have a good doctor and lots of refills on the meds to keep you calm. I know I would need them.

Queen Bee said...

Coming from someone who is heading into another Pennsylvania winter, that video looks amazing.

I have to say the video makes me want to jump in the picture...you know like Blues clues!!

McEwens said...

He looks like he is having a blast! Is that a empty pool? or built that way?

goodfather said...

Drat, can't see the videos from work, but I can just imagine, heh. I could never board. Sigh.

shaunna said...

i want that second picture. he is so awesome.

Mama Dawg said...

Believe me, I'm only young in my mind. My body's 31 (but is quickly going on 50). My mind, however, is about on par with a 12 year old boy.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

eudea- : -) probably. but at 16 that is not something he shares.

SMB - there's another shot with a bigger wave, but my voice is screaming his name and NO NO NO. since I don't use my kids names I couldn't post it.

just b- he is on a friendly basis with his pediatirc orthopedic since he has had two borken wrists (snowboarding and skateboarding) and an ankle (dirt biking). Only god thing is right now he wants to be an orthopedic sprots doc.


queenb and carrie- would love to see snow. we are still running our air conditioner at night so we can sleep.


mcewan - those are skate parks. we did a skatepark tour of southern cal in summer 07 fo rhim, to make up for the musical theatre part of the vacation in NYC.


goodfather, I can't even rest my foot on his skateboard without falling down.


mama - 31 is young to me ; -))))))

Rhea said...

Wow, that was awesome! I held my breath the whole time during the skateboarding video. He did great though!

The one in the ocean though. OUCH.

thistle said...

i can see how he would absolutely love snowboarding...did he get to go in the bowl when he was here in whistler?!...

and the beach shot...beautiful...

a/c on at night eh?...i seriously thought it felt like snow here today...cold and gray...just had that feel...brrr....

Tricia said...

Wow! Even when I was that age, I couldn't walk straight.

Cristin said...

You're on meds right?? Or you drink heavily... and wear depends...

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

thistle - i have no idea what the bowl is, I did not get to go, but I'll ask him. and it finally rained today so the humidity is down and we have a nice cool 75 degrees.

tricia ; -)

cristin - wine. and I think he causes some of my migraines.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

rhea - don't hold your breath girl!

Vodka Mom said...

I love those shots! My nephew was an avid skateboarder - it reminds me of him!!

smiles4u said...

Very impressive and great pictures! It really does look like fun so I can see how he loves it.

only a movie said...

Wow. The skateboarding looks so easy. I couldn't watch my own do that. Not without ativan. And you filmed it?! Amazing. You must have nerves of steel.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

My husband filmed it. If you look in the distance, there is a strip mall. My daughter and I were over there getting pedicures while my husband hung out with the boy and filmed him skating.

Rhea said...

Oh, I want a pedicure. I NEED a pedicure.

Thanks for stopping by UpTake and leaving a comment! I appreciate it!

Twenty Four At Heart said...

You know I saw this last Friday and I should have recognized it, but I didn't. I guess I was thinking Hawaii so much that it didn't click. How funny to see you showing pics of OC!! :)
