Every once in a while I experience true joy. Given my track record with roller skating, you wouldn't think it would happen in a roller rink. I was wrong.
I was walking (see above link and you'll know why) around the rink with the kids. They were so happy! It couldn't help but rub off on me. We were smiling! We were having fun! We were carefree
until I had to run after Caleb because he was going out to the parking lot!
Soon they were going around by themselves, having a blast, and even doing the limbo! My brother Sam skated around, too. He's known Spencer for a couple of years now (since he first started coming to visit us up here) so they like doing stuff together.
My roller skating memories are locked up in the music. Michael Jackson, Culture Club, J. Giles Band, Cyndi Lauper, and more! If yesterday was any indication of the kinds of music memories my kids will have, it will include a lot of Miley Cyrus and Jonas Brothers.
