I kinda think Jenna rather enjoys this roller blading! What do you think?!
Elizabeth is now just beginning to get the hang of roller blades. She stands well on them and is beginning to learn to glide on them a bit.
Notice the two different shoes on Hannah?! It's no mistake, she did this on purpose. We have two different pairs of shoes that have rollers on the bottom. One pair only has one on the back called a heely, the other pair has two, one on the front and one on the back like a pair of roller skates. Hannah thought it too difficult to walk in the one that was more like regular roller skates. Soooo, next thing I know, she puts one of each on. At first I was like, "uhh Hannah those are two different shoes girl!" Then I realized she must have done that on purpose. It helped her keep her balance easier while learning. Pretty smart Hannah!!
Elizabeth is enjoying learning to ride the ripstick. Though she has a ways to go, she seems to be catching on. It takes awhile to learn that thing!
