This morning I had the privilege of going into school with Eli's unicycle so that he could demonstrate how to ride it to his classmates for show & tell.
I get a real thrill out of seeing Eli riding his uni' but to see him ride it with a crowd really made my heart glow. It was great to hear Eli's classmates heaping praise and compliments on him, I think my favourite was hearing one of the lads telling the teacher "He makes it look so easy!".
I can't lie, it was also great to see Eli being lauded as being "Very cool!". Even the high school pupils that saw him were very impressed and a few of the teaching staff came out to marvel at him.
Since he first started learning to ride just over a month ago Eli has been desperate to take the uni' into school but I told him he had to be able to free-mount it (get on without holding onto anything else) first so he spent a couple of hours perfecting his technique ready for today. And man was he good!

Another stunning flower in our garden. No idea what this is but it's simply gorgeous!
