We have an aspiring juggler among our ranks!
“Silas rides a giraffe unicycle. He can juggle balls, clubs, and rings. Balancing atop a rolling globe, Silas can jump rope. Whether it is spinning plates or manipulating devil sticks, Silas has learned the basics of most circus skills and is putting in the time and effort to extend those skills. In aerials Silas has developed abilities on both the trapeze and silks (his favorite position is “the diaper”). Stilts? You betcha–both clasic and painter’s stilts!
When Silas and his friends gather for play they don’t just throw balls and ride scooters, they also pass devil sticks and go on unicycling adventures. On occasion one can find a unicycle obstacle course set up in the neighborhood or kids developing a new circus “gag.” When Silas meets up with his extended family, he is asked to show off his latest tricks with appreciative oohs and ahhs from cousins and the occasional neighbor. Being a clown has its perks.”
