Fly, Bird, Fly!

Last week was spring break for us. We decided, amongst other things, to take the kids roller skating for the first time. Here is the scenario: four young kids, two parents and a bunch of wheeled shoes. Nothing could go wrong, right?
They hated it. Yep, hated.
Okay, Isaac said it was, “Not that fun” so maybe hate is a strong word.
Now in hindsight I remember I hated skating the first time…and the second time… and maybe now I know why we don’t skate very often.
We will probably take them a second time soon, and a third time after that, until they decide it is fun. We do things like this because as parents it is our job to push our kids a little out of their comfort zone. Have you ever heard what birds do to their young? This is much better than pushing them out of the nest.
