A lovely warm,. sunny Saturday and what better way to spend it than with the family at the creek? Nearly 15 year old teenagers could probably think of lots. It's not easy enjoying yourself while maintaining your teenage dignity.
Even if there's no-one of importance (eg friends or boys) around to see you, you have to practise looking good.
You even have to trust a parent with your phone for a few minutes. A split second after I took this, the phone was in the drink. Luckily, Heather re-acted quickly and fished it out before damage was done. I wish I'd had the camera focused on Krystal's face!
While the ten year olds are noisily enjoying themselves:
the phone once again distracts the teenager. (I will try to keep this image of her wearing my hat out of my mind next time I wear it!)
She then distracts herself with my camera (and her dad's boots).
Pointing it up and down at random:
But eventually the sounds of fun from the young ones draws her back to the water and she deigns to join them.
And when the real fun starts, she totally forgets she is a cool teenager.
Roll on summer!
