warming up before her big debut

practicing what to do if she hit big waves

getting ready to take off

and she’s still standing, first try!

hang 10, SJ!

lookin’ like a pro
All summer SJ has wanted to try surfing. We’re not exactly sure where this desire came from–we think either watching Jake & the Neverland Pirates on Disney or the surf shop downtown Saint Joe. Either way, this last weekend at the Lake, we were finally able to let her try.
I don’t think any of us expected her to be such a natural, getting up and staying standing her first trip out. I was impressed–she did better than I would have!
