On Friday, we were so excited because it was Cycle Day 2, which means we get to go to gym. That also means it was our first class of ROLLER SKATING!!! It was also our first gym class of the new year and we were so excited to see Mr. Nelson. You see, he and his wife welcomed a new baby boy to their family on December 24. His name is Henrick and we made him a huge card with our hand prints! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Nelson!
Then it was time to get ready for skating. As you might imagine, this took a lot of listening and patience. We did a really good job!
Mr. Nelson helped us find skates that fit us well and Mrs. Mueller got us our wrist guards. Mrs. Radermacher helped get helmets for students that did not bring theirs from home and Mrs. Hannasch talked to us about cleaning the helmets after we used them. We all worked together!
Mr. Nelson showed us how to get up, how to fall, and how to move forward on the skates. Then we were off! It was really fun!
