Use It or Lose It

Guess what we did this weekend!!!!!
Yep... that's MY foot!!!!!!

We ALL hit the floor at Skatetown USA.  Lydia did awesome as Craig and I took turns pushing her around like a lawn mower. 
 Luke had a little trouble finding his balance, but it's just his nature to want to be perfect the first time around. 
 By the end though, he was a happy camper.

And I personally am thrilled that  I  didn't completely wipe out.  Not even once did my tushie touch the floor!  There was one second when I first stood up that I had to throw my hands wildly into the air grabbing for an ounce of dignity, but nope- I didn't actually fall down.  THANK GOODNESS!!!!!!!!  All I have to say is ROLLER SKATING is NOT like RIDING A BIKE!!!!! This is a skill that if you don't use it, you totally lose it!
That being said though... by the end of our fun, I loved it so much that I went a few times around the rink all by myself.  YEEHAW!!!!
