Ruben performed on the skim board like a boss! He's pretty good even when skimming conditions aren't so great. The hot sand made for a lot of fun too. Covering themselves in warm sand and then jumping in the cool water and then doing it again. Ruben said to me today " today I went motorcycle riding, now skim boarding and swimming.... I'm pretty lucky and that is just awesome " he was quiet for a moment while thinking about his adventures and then I helped him name the feeling as more than lucky, it's grateful. Gratitude is a sure sign of maturity. I love watching this unfold, and gratitude is a feeling I frequently have because of this beautiful life I share with my family.
