Blog 4 We Start Them Young at TSAST


The weather was beautiful for flying today. Jessica came back after a big absence and it was like she’d never been away. She worked on her hocks off trick and it looked beautiful.

Both Jessica and Alli had brought their children who are five and two respectively. Alli talked about how when they are older we can give them pocket money to help around the property and they are already helping with the set up and the pack down.

When we had all had a go Amelia Jessica’s daughter had a go and that girl ran to the ladder. Today she was hanging from her knees, it was amazing. Wave to Mummy Nick says while she’s hanging in the air and wave Amelia does.

Alli said look at Oliver he is so jealous. I thought at two years old? No way. Two year old Oliver then goes and puts a belt on and I thought uh oh. We all had a go at saying, when you’re bigger, Amelia is five and you are two but there were tears and hugs and Alli said does this remind you of how miserable you were when you couldn’t fly and I thought yes Ollie I totally feel your pain. Anyhoo Nick says does the belt fit? I test it, Alli tests it and yes the belt fits. So he and Alli come up with a way that Oliver stands in the net with the safety lines and gets raised up and has a swing. He’s laughing and telling Nick to go faster and it was brilliant. He and Amelia were highlights of the session.
