Ok, just a little note. I took my two kids rollerskating this weekend. They are 9 and 5. This was there first time skating and they did fabulous. I thought they were going to be on the floor MOST of the time and boy was I wrong. I was really proud how well they did. On another note, I skated as well. I forgot how much FUN it is. When I was younger I went skating every Friday and Saturday night. What great exercise. My shins were killing me after two times around!
