So last Sunday the girls' school/church rented the skating rink and had an all-skate for members and friends. So my sister asked me if I wanted to stick around and go skating with them.
Yeah, I can skate.
Or, I could skate, back in the day.
Do you have any idea how SLOW you have to go with first graders who have never skated before? And, yeah I was going to go down regardless, but for me to land on a kid, that would be murder, at least manslaughter.
I did go down.
Elena was in front of me, and I was trying to get her to move her body back and forth so she would get a little speed up, and well, she went down and I sacrificed my knees so I wouldn't kill her.
Other than that, I stayed up which is pretty amazing, really.
We had fun. My sister and I. After our calves stopped screaming at us. Gave us kind of a different perspective on our parents. But, they were twenty years younger than we were when they did their last skating party.
The girls did ok. I think my sister and I were happier at the end than they were. But it was their first time. I am glad it was only two hours. It is quite the workout for all of that.
Great post! I love it! yep
, hurts hu?? LOL (I only laugh if I know the feeling)..
