Good news/Bad news/Worse news
Good news: As you can read here, certification Pass is Pass!, I passed my 3rd and 4th exams and am now an MCSD.

Bad news: Quinn fell off Lady today--he's not hurt, but he was very upset--quite a setback. We're going to withdraw him from the Lead Line class and keep practicing, building up his competence and confidence...

Worse news: Pam heads off for her business trip this afternoon. Quinn and I will miss her. She comes back next week.

Current Mood: mixed

Yeah...luckily, he fell just right--didn't flail an arm out just did a kind of side-to-back roll, helmet protected the noggin...

So he was extremely scared and upset, but so far as I can tell, the force of the fall was spread so evenly that he doesn't even look like he came out of the experience with bruises...

OH!!! You should totally have called. Although you might not have wanted your first impression of me being sick & gross with an uncleaned due yp being sick & gross house...

Just a few weeks and I'll be swimming in your pool. No worries. ;-}

You do realize that unless you bring a wading pool, there is no pool, right?

That's why it's a (non)Pool Party.

I know. It's all in the fun of it. You do have AC though right, because I is a petite flower who will wilt in the midday sun otherwise.

Yeah...well, I guess he's got good falling instincts...he didn't do any of the bad things like holding an arm out...just dropped on his side and rolled to his back.

I wasn't there, but it sounds pretty miraculous...

The really amazing thing: he was talking later in the day about going to ride Lady again, so I guess he wasn't overly traumatized.

You should teach him acrobatics or Judo/Aikido. Lots of rolling and falling prevention experiance there.

That's what I mean, to build on. Maybe not the martial arts, but acrobatics is fun. I miss it. Maybe when I get thin again...
