As these kids get older, I am running out of 1st's to report on.
But, here's one that we have never done.
Coordination isn't one our genetic strong points, so I have to say I was a bit nervous. I watched from the bench, because clearly strapping blades onto my feet would be a catastrophe. Besides, I was hoping to capture some good bloopers for America's Funniest Home Video.
Amazingly, everyone did pretty darn good. So, you won't be seeing us on national TV anytime soon.
Chase started out pretty slow. Hugging the walls and hanging onto Dad for dear life.
You can see Dylan cheering him on in the reflection.
Dylan is my bench warmer. He is very reluctant to participate in most things.
But, Daddy begged and pleaded........
...... and we eventually got him to put some skates on.
He only made it one time around. But, hey, at least he tried.
By the end of it, Chase was whizzing around there pretty good.
And did I mention, there were NO injuries.
That's a success, in my book!
