Bubble Suit

We gave Anna in-line roller skates and Chris a "skateboard" (really it's a scooterboard) for Christmas... they both had been asking for these items for quite some time, so we finally decided just to "do it"!

But I was soo hesitant at the store to actually purchase them....

Why?? Because they are dangerous! Once you get into skating and skateboarding there are all sorts of injuries!!

Ok, ok, I'm a little cautious and overprotective...

I'm a MOM!

And I am NOT very coordinated myself:) I worry my kids inherited some of my klutziness :(

So today I take the kids outside to try out their toys (the snow is melting... yay)!! I made them get on their "gear"... aka helmets and knee pads for Anna:)

At first, Anna held onto my hand and I was perfectly happy with having her holding on:) LOL!!

Chris, though!! He just "goes for it"!




And then he remembers the sloped entrance into the fellowship hall...


It's those moments I start to wonder if we should invest in a "bubble suit"... kind of like those inflatable sumo wrestling outfits...

like this...

but add a helmet with a visor...
and some knee pads...
one of those teeth guard things that professional football players wear.

Then maybe I won't flinch each time I hear the skateboard hit the pavement!

And from the video of Chris you can see that Anna quickly let go of my hand and was going around the "circle" without me :)

She was so proud of her new accomplishment:)


I was soo proud of them BOTH, too!! And thankful that maybe they are more coordinated like their Daddy:)And are NOT like ME:)

That is the cutest video. It's like boys are just born wanting to take risks! LOL!

Anna did so well on the skates, I'm 31 and still can't skate.
