With three new pairs of inline skates (Ada’s still a bit wary of them) we decided to go to the lake for some skating. My intention was to have Ada skate a bit, but she only made it about 50 feet away before she wanted to turn back and get her scooter. Helena and (especially) Liam were much more willing to give it a shot. Helena wanted to go all the way around the lake with Liam. Ada was supposed to stay with me, but she took off with them. But they did make it all the way around Lake of the Isles, which is 2.86 miles.

Liam does the splits (again)

Liam has learned really quickly.

Liam will wear long sleeved shirts even in 80 degree weather even if warned.

Liam Does a Split

I got Helena a pair of rollerblades at a garage sale and they fit Liam as well. The day before he was saying how he wanted a pair of roller skates and I told him that hardly anyone uses them anymore but I can try to find him a pair of rollerblades. He was unconvinced, but once he put Helena’s on, he was quite happy with them. Except with all the rain this week, when he came up onto the porch, the wet wood made his legs go out from underneath him.

I didn’t get a photo of him doing the splits, but he was still laughing about it, and was still trying to get up.
