At the moment, Son 1 is suffering from growing pains, triggered by a growth spurt which has left him with long leg bones and short tendons. Sounds pretty horrible, doesn't it? It was at its worst before term ended, and he had a few weeks on crutches and one memorable weekend borrowing a friend's wheelchair, but now he's fine on his feet, although swimming and cycling are far more comfortable than walking until his tendons catch up. So family 'walks' with the dog currently look like this - two boys cycing on ahead then skimming past us at regular intervals, and the dog getting a great workout running between all members of the party! Son 1 is in the photo above, on the path down to the Coulée Verte, and Son 2 is below, on the track back up from our town lake. You'd be hard-pushed to tell the difference, wouldn't you?
