Yesterday was opening day of the Carolinas Nationals BMX racing – by far the biggest Charlie has ever participated in. We went over to watch him, and it was such a great day. His mom and dad got way better pictures of him than I did, but I did love standing and watching the elite level riders, and the pros, start off the big hill. SO exciting – and dangerous. There were a good many crashes, but no one got taken off on a stretcher, which I understand happens fairly often. Oh my.
