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? :)
