For Nolan’s birthday, we celebrated a week early in order to do it while we were at home. The kids got to borrow some adjustable roller skates while we were on deputation, and they seemed to like it. There is a new-ish roller skating rink at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Pier 6. I’ve been wanting to go there anyway, so we gave both Elaine and Nolan some skates and took them skating. Elaine did better than Nolan. He got tired of falling on his bum, and took the skates off, but then eventually he put them back on. (Poor guy is a klutz like Mommy). Grandma outfitted them with new helmets, too.
It was a lovely evening to walk by the East River and view the city. The kids were on and off the rink, and we even let the twins have a go. Nehemiah is a natural athlete and did fantastic, even skating without the support bar!
