She’s been waiting for this for a long while –

ever since uncle Laine showed her a u-tube video of figure skaters

then there was the putting plastic bags on her feet and sliding across the rug

Some friends invited us to join them for the preschool skate this week at Oaks Park. It was Bennie’s first time on 8 wheels, and so fun. The kids all got a mini-lesson, where they stretched, learned how to get up from sitting, bend, and use marching steps at first instead of trying to slide.  My little one looked so grown up in those wee size 10 quads, with wheels she described as “kinda orange-ish”, then trying to go fast and skip the “marching steps” advice altogether when she saw the more experienced kids go zooming by.

Though perhaps her favorite part was when “Chipper”, the employee in a chipmunk costume, emerged. Oh goodness,  he/she was immediately surrounded with an adoring crowd of munchkins.

Much fun all around –
