Whee!

Yesterday, the boys got new (to them) rollerblades. They wore them for a while and had a great time. Matthew is actually pretty good at it. He wanted to sleep in them! (I didn't let him, btw). Right now, they are mostly just shuffling and learning how to hold their ankles straight.

So as not to be left out, I went and got a pair of rollerblades and a helmet for myself. They didn't have elbow and knee pads that fit me, so I need to pick those up somewhere.

Now, I'm not uncoordinated. I used to rollerskate a lot, and I've ice skated before. These are hard to get the hang of! I want to be able to go over to the park and skate with Michael and Matthew, but I've got to learn a thing or two first. So I don't get hurt and can catch them if I need to :)

jillions - you up for bringing yours over one day to help us learn? :)

Not to be negative, but I'm all for planning ahead. Go ahead and get the name and number of a good Orthopedic Surgeon. :)

Of my 18+ broken bones (at this point I've lost count), all but three of them have been due to skating. And I still think I'm a pretty good skater!!


Seriously, I think it's an awesome activity. I hope you guys have fun!!

I've never broken a bone. It's really bizarre. I skated, played basketball, played racquetball, had a trampoline, rode a bike, did gymnastics and was a general nuisance. No broken bones.

I swear, when I do break a bone, I'm probably going to be the BIGGEST BABY! I hope it doesn't happen soon :)

Sure, I can come over for a lesson, but I STRONGLY urge you to stay off of them until your knee has had a few more weeks of healing. Notice the "strongly"? Yes, I mean it!

How about I come over when I get back from Germany in a couple weeks? (back in town the evening of feb 27)

Yes, Mommy.

Deal. :) I'll even wear my knee brace when skating in addition to kneepads and the other equipment *laugh*
