WOOHOO!! I can HEELY!!
Thursday, August 19, 2010
I have always found it fascinating to watch our children Heely (skate using sneakers with wheels) and I aways thought it would be fun to try. Well, I got my chance -- our oldest, age 16, needed bigger Heelys and I purchased him some and they fit me too! So. . . one day while our younger kids and a few extras were skating on the back porch I thought it would be fun to join them. I looked like a fool -- I tried for about 10 minutes and just couldn't get over my fear of breaking something (on me of course). I looked like a chicken trying to take flight. The kids were supportive but I just couldn't do it. Today, my second attempt and without the kids, I successfully got over my fear of falling and was able to Heely -- woohoo! I think I'll practice privately a bit more and then surprise the kids at a later date.
