He had so much fun! Here he is right after he got his skates on.
And while he was "having fun" I spent the afternoon with my heart in my throat! He fell, and fell and fell some more. It was not fun to watch as a mom.
But somehow, I still managed to take pictures!
He was bound and determined to do it though. And by the end, he was making it around the rink without falling down.
He now wants skates for his birthday and he wants to go skating again!
I managed to get some video of Josh too -- and I was under strict orders to play it for Daddy as soon as I got home!
He also had a sleep over at the birthday boys house. Apparently, they had a great time and were up until at least 1:30 in the morning, and then back up again before 7:00 a. m. Needless to say, Josh was a wreck on Sunday. We went to the playground because it was such a beautiful day and thought the fresh air would do Josh some good. He fell asleep on the way to the playground and on the way home!
We had him in bed by 6:30 last night. When I tried to get him up at 6:00 this morning for the bus, I couldn't wake him up. He slept until 7:00! I had to drive him to school and he was about 5 minutes late, but it was worth it for him to get that extra hour of sleep.
I have a feeling it will take him most of the week to recover!
