It all started with a challenge..
I got roller skates for the whole family in order to find something that we could all do together outside and that involved getting some exercise.
The kids loved it, but my eldest son refused to skate anywhere with me besides in our backyard, since I was embarrassingly bad at roller skating.
I really wanted to hang out with him on skates, so he proposed a challenge - to skate every day until I was deemed good enough to be "cool" (or as cool as a mom can be, right?).External link
