We went with some friends to a roller skating rink the other day. Man, I hadn’t been to one in sooo long! We’re not really skaters (roller or otherwise 🙂 We’re kind of accident prone people, so putting wheels on our feet and
falling sliding around on a slippery floor with a bunch of kids whizzing by isn’t really our thing. Needless to say, it was the boys’ first time at a rink.
They were excited the second we got there – pumping music, dancing lights, the arcade and super expensive, low quality food – oh, to be in junior high again!
We put roller blades on their feet and walked them out onto the floor. Ethan was crying out of frustration within the first 20 seconds. Yeah, he’s a quitter. I mean, it’s roller blading, not school right?
Silas went around for like 50 rounds holding onto someone, then decided to try going solo. He had a few falls, but got right back up; he actually did great! That’s right son, use some of that athletic ability you clearly didn’t get from your mother!
So, maybe the summer will hold a few more trips to the skating rink. If Ethan can get his act together, that is 🙂
