Even though our kids have bikes, scooters, skateboards, and a wagon, when we came across these roller skates at the second hand store, we could not pass them up. I mean, they were $6 including the knee and elbow pads!
We brought them home and Julie immediately wanted to put them on and go for it. She was all set, but just couldn't get up on her own.
When she got to her feet, she held my hand to the end of the driveway, then she just let go and started going herself. And these skates are not the kind that only go forward, they are free rolling!
When she was tuckered out, which didn't take long because skating is hard work, it was Andy's turn. He was so wild, legs going everywhere, "running" in place. He didn't last very long, and Julie and I never let go of him, but he had fun.
All in all, $6 well spent.
On an unrelated note, last night we went out to dinner with my mom and Julie was sitting there eating her dinner. She said, "Memere, I am curious. Curious means 'What the heck?!?!?!'"
We all busted out laughing. Her inflection and expression were perfect. So funny.
