A couple of hours ago we dropped our 15 year old at the airport for a 4 hour flight to Perth (an 'American coast to coast' equivalent trip he's doing by himself), where he'll be competing on Sunday with a host of other professional scooter riders for a $1000 first prize and auto entry into the Worlds in August. We have every confidence in the world that he can win. As anxious parents would do, on the way to the airport we're asking him questions about what he knows about the skatepark ('like I've been to Perth before?') or his strategy ('look, I don't care about the park, I just show up and go'). He's been invited to join Nitro Circus (his lifelong idol Travis Pastrana's gig) and since he announced this on FB yesterday, there have been over 600 comments posted.
I'm blown away with how different life is now compared to then (We got the 'could you leave me at the security check? plea and were out of the airport in record time.) I can't even imagine getting on an airplane at 15, never mind alone...
We got back to the house after a wonderful dinner and a fine McLaren Vale Cab Sauv at The Pier in Port Mebourne and just as we pulled up to the house, the Dropkick Murphys came on the radio.
