Skates and scooters..

For Christmas Josephine received her own, never been used before scooter. She was so excited!  The other night she used her scooter to stall going to bed.  The call went out "bedtime!" and she raced to and jumped on her scooter, scooting back and forth from kitchen to dining room she started singing the alphabet song at the top of her lungs.  As she flew back in forth from room to room with her blond pigtails flowing behind her she new she was achieving her goal.  We did let her stay up a little longer so we could see the twinkle in her eye and the smile on her face.

Evelyn received a pair of 4 wheeled roller skates for Christmas.  She will be receiving lessons from a friend of Shawn's from seminary.  Last time I took Evie to skate we ended up on the floor.  A lot!  This friend that is giving the lessons has participated in roller derby.  In thinking about this, roller derby might just be Evie's thing.  A team sport, rough, loud, good exercise and uses strategy.  Evelyn is always thinking ahead.  We might be on to something here, but I guess she should learn how to skate first.
