Yesterday we decided to go skating. Or rather, Dear Husband, Firecracker, and DramaQueen skated while I stood safely on the sidelines. I have been rollerskating once in my life, and it was not a pleasant experience. I was just into my teens. The rink was hard and the slipperiest surface I had ever been on. Everyone whizzed past while I inched along the wall. It was not fun at all.
I'm glad the girls have the chance to learn early, and that they aren't at all intimidated by the throngs of faster skaters. DramaQueen did very well--she's been skating twice with camp groups. It was Firecracker's first time, and she also did well, even though she's so tiny I worried a cocky skater wouldn't even notice her. She didn't seem worried, though.
On the way home Firecracker announced that she wanted to ice skate. I've never been on ice skates even once.
I think I need some remedial lessons in being a kid.
