Oh man. I am so proud of my little guy lately. Merrik has seriously stepped up as best big brother, awesome student, passionate surfer and all around sweet kid lately.
Today Merrik begged and begged until I gave in to take him surfing. It was warmer than it has been but still the air was a chilly 56º and the ocean 57º. There wasnt’ much wind but just the thought of being in the water gave me the chills. But, he donned his wetsuit, booties and plunged right in. He spent an hour catching waves in the chilly surf. We stayed until the sun set into the blue-green water and cast golden halos on each wave crest. It was a perfect evening with my nearly perfect kid.
