We, including me, tried out our ice skating abilities in College Station for the first time in December. All 3 of the kids loved it! So my mom, sister, and I took them back for another skating session. This time Cason decided that ice skating was not for him and would have no part of it. The kids have orange traffic cones that they hold on to, while skating, to help them keep their balance.
Jackson and Maddie got brave enough to venture out on the ice without their stability cones. They both had their share of falls, but we only captured Jackson's fall on video.
Madison has been riding her bike without training wheels for a couple of years now. Jackson learned how within the last year, but Cason has just recently tried the 2-wheeling bicycle ride. Corey ran behind him holding onto the back of the bike while Cason peddled. He was doing fairly well until a tree jumped out in front him. Lucky for us all, I was videoing the bicycle riding attempts. I think for now, Cason's bicycling days are over!
We are on to the next extreme sporting event, roller skating. So far, there seems to be a trend of Cason not participating in the Pitts Family X-Games; however, he decided to take part in roller skating. Jackson and Cason went to Brock Sykora's birthday party at Skate World last weekend. Both of the boys got out on the floor like they were pro-skaters. They soon realized they were not! After a few minutes, Cason decided that he did not want to skate anymore, so he went to play arcarde games. Jackson pressed on, determined he could master roller skating. Eventually, Cason returned to the rink and ended up skating as well as Jackson.
We will be trying yet another extreme sport in March. We are going skiing in Angel Fire, NM for Spring Break. I can't wait to see the Pitts' skills in the snow!!!
