Spring is really here. So yesterday, I dug out Brian's old pair of in-line skates and had Sean give them a try. Thanks to his ice-skating lessons in school, he is actually able to rollerblade immediately. This is a video I took today of Sean rollerblading, he looks tipsy, like he's had too much to drink, BUT trust me, this is wayyyyy better than how Brian fared 4 years ago. The boys are not the sportiest kids around.
I bought these skates for Brian in spring of 2005 (from this fantastic shop in Frankfurt called Lidl, for only 30Euro maybe), but he wasn't able to rollerblade despite all my cajoling and pushing. So I am really happy that the boys got something out of the school's ice-skating classes.
Brian has asked that I buy him a new pair asap and I'm now thinking if I should invest in two good pairs of rollerblades for them. My friend May says the expensive rollerblades make a world of difference...but jeez, they are really expensive.
While it's gonna be hard parting with money, I think even harder would be finding a kid's helmet big enough for Sean's head :P
