Life is Like A Box of Roller Blades



She's six.
She wants to roller blade.
She gets her bother's blades on and off she goes.

She falls.

She gets up.

Photobucket

She falls again.

Photobucket

She gets up again.

Photobucket

Over and over.
Until finally,

Photobucket

she gets it !

Yahoo... she did!! She is learning not only to skate but what a little determination will do.

Shhh... I feel like this somedays and I don't even have rollerblades on. LOL...

life is like a box of roller-blades...the potential to break your ass is tremendous.

What a sweetheart - but I keep wondering, what happened NEXT - in the last pic she is high in the air...was it a victory jump for her success? Did she land OK?

Oh and where did you get her beautiful dress? I just love it.

Karen ... she did land OK ! She was doing 'jumps' all over the place ! She'd land some and not land some ! But ... no tears were shed this day and no knees were bloodied !! Woo Hoo ! As for the dress ... it IS beautiful ! I love it too. I have a cousin who is a year older than Jono and her Mom (my Auntie) has given me many of her beautiful clothes over the years after she is done wearing them. I just love her taste and so appreciate her generosity !! So ... that's where I got it, I'm not sure which shop it came from though ! :) I'm sure that doesn't help you one bit !!
