In-Line Skating

In Peirce's kindergarten class they're doing in-line skating in gym. These is really out of Peirce's comfort zone - we call him the Safety Man. Something like in-line skating is certainly on the edge of acceptable to the Safety Man. However, he was a trooper today and did a great job!! I volunteered to help in the class and it was a riot to watch all these kids learn to do this. The first thing they learn is how to fall properly.....Peirce has really got falling down pat. I did get in there and help the poor kid learn how to stand up....but ya, initially it was good for a laugh! (Poor kid...what do you do when you have a mother like me.....learn to laugh I guess!)

This is the video at the end of the class. He's able to get up now!! They taught him to keep his hands in front so that if he falls he falls properly. If there's one thing you can count on, if you teach Peirce the little things that you need to do to be successful at something he'll watch like a hawk and you can count on him to do it!

By the end of the class those kids were hot and sweaty and VERY worn out.
