The kids went roller skating party last weekend. They got to skate for the first time ever. Sure, Santa brought skates two Christmases ago because it was the ONLY thing that Renée wanted that year, but they usually only skate on the shag run. It provides a lot of resistance--not like real skating! They were a little too sure of themselves when they hit the rink! Renée was able to skate around the rink after a little practice on the little practice pad. Elijah did MUCH better on the carpet, but in true "cool boy" fashion he decided to hit the arcade games. Luckily, they were all in demo mode and he didn't realize that he was supposed to actually insert money.
