I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. Let me show you what we did Friday night…..We went and watched our son race his motorcycle. He asked me earlier in the week what we had going on Friday night and I said nothing but return the rental car, my Jeep had been hit and was in the body shop. He says good, then you can come watch me race. I quickly said, race what? and when he said his motorcycle my heart sank and my stomach churned.
This is not something a mom wants to hear, no matter how old their kids are….BTW he’s only 20. Well of course I was going, I support everything he does but I certainly didn’t like the idea. Oh my they have no fear when they’re young. We pulled into US 131 Motorsports Park just in time to see him at the starting line ready to race. Of course I wanted to watch but I also wanted to hide my eyes until it was over. I decided taking pictures would keep me occupied rather than worry the whole time.
I did say to him couldn’t you take up something like knitting that’s less dangerous? But you can guess how that went over, I don’t think that’s a hobby on his list. It was almost 10 pm with just enough time for one more race when I spotted this……
I thought how cool he has flames that shoot out of his car. Then I heard the ambulance, and realized this wasn’t a fancy trick the car actually was on fire and wasn’t supposed to be. 45 minutes later the track was cleared, cleaned, and the driver of the car was safe.
After lots of praying the night was finally over and my son came home in one piece. I sure hope this isn’t going to be an ongoing thing, I’m not sure how much I can take.
