Roller Skating Lessons

With the school skate night coming up, Melissa and I decided to take our kiddos to a free skate lesson at Great Skate to help prepare them.  We got there early on Saturday morning, got them into their skates (which was no small task), and they started their lesson.

Both, Blake and Taylor started out using the roller bars to help them, then as the lesson continued, the instructors took them away, and little by little, they were rollering around.  It was cute to see those stiff, locked-knee, little legs learning to roll along! 

Blake even got brave and stared squatting down to go around the corners, sometimes with one leg out to help him turn...that same strategy sure helped him during the roller-limbo game! 

After the lesson, the rink lets them stay and skate for as long as they want! Can't wait to do this again!
