When Big Sister turned five, Mr. Great and I surprised the kids with scooters. A pink Maxi Kick for Big Sister, and a green Mini Kick for Little Brother. They took to them right away, first practicing in the driveway, then on the tennis courts at the park.
In no time at all, Big Sister was able to scoot along lines.
And she could do tricks. Look, one hand!
She moves fast!
Little Brother still needs a little help. Truth be told, he prefers to be pulled.
But he's working on scooting independently.
Within about a week, Big Sister was beating a neighbor boy in scooter races. She scoots down the hall to her room. She asks to go ride her scooter every Saturday and Sunday. I can't tell you how impressed I am with the quality of these scooters, or how much these kids love them. This is the face I love to see:
