Seth's Skating Lessons

During April, Seth took roller skating lessons at Skate America in Grove City. This is a popular place around town and Seth's school holds roller skating parties there frequently and we've been to a few birthday parties there (including Isabelle's 8th birthday). Each person who takes skating lessons also gets a brand new pair of skates! Seth's are really cool black and blue ones.

The Ghostbusters Game

The class had about 8 students, 2 of which were adult women (it was slightly comical to watch those women). During the first two classes they practiced some skills then played various games. During the last two classes, they just played games. One game was skating to the song "Ghostbusters" and every time the song said "Ghostbusters", everyone had to turn and start skating the other way. They also did the Chicken Dance, Hokey Pokey and the Limbo. Here's Seth doing the Limbo - he was really good at it!


Here's a video of Seth skating:

Seth really had fun taking the skating lessons and hopefully we'll get to go skating more often now!
