When we learned the weather would be warm and sunny on Friday, we decided to give the scooting and biking a test run in the skate park.
First, the children thought of their safety list. Wearing helmets, riding slowly, looking around, getting back on, and having fun all made the list.
After walking our vehicles to the park, we started exploring. Amazing! Such bravery and style, trying new tricks, enjoying the sunny day and being together.
Then some skilled skaters joined us. They showed us their tricks, which we watched with excitement. Then we showed them our tricks! They were impressed. We did some races, exchanged tips, even asked if they were okay if they fell.
Emboldened, some children tried the skateboards themselves. There were some run ins, some tip overs, but each time, the children got back on, and most of all, had fun.
Thank you for letting us have this opportunity. We were so impressed by the risk taking, resilience and skills we saw there.
