Last night several of us checked out a free open house and lesson at the Racine Curling Club. We had joked a bit about the sport the week prior, and thought it would be fun to see what it was all about. We had a great time learning how to slide, balance, sweep and stay upright all at the same time. I don't think any of us plan to become regulars at the activity, but it was a great thing to do with good friends (you know, those you're not too embarrassed to really make a fool out of yourself in front of).
Then today, my co-leader and I took our Girl Scout troop to Skatetown for lessons and free skating. It was a blast. The girls were amazing. And by the way, it felt good to know I still had it. I don't think my concern was crashing, so much as being crashed into by one of the 75 or so kids on the rink all at different skill levels. Well worth it, fun for the kids and oh we've got to have an adult night at this too!
I'm really beginning to see a pattern here. We're participating on an adult dodge ball team two weeks from now for a charity event. When was the last time you had fun at play?
