On Friday, I decided to surprise Sophie with a new experience. I only told her we were going to the playground and not to wear flip flops. I packed a snack for the girls and we were off....
As soon as we left home, Sophie knew we were going someplace new because we turned in a different direction from all of our usual playgrounds.
She stayed glued to the window. (She'd asked to wear my hat and it was so adorable on her!)
I'd stored Soph's scooter and helmet in the back of the car without her knowing. When we pulled up to the Waxhaw Skate Park, her eyes got so big. Of course she didn't really know what it was yet.....just a bunch of cement hills and valleys.
Once she saw me pull the scooter and helmet out of the back, she realized pretty quickly what she was supposed to do with them. And she was off....
The smile on her face was so big. It made my heart swell. I could almost feel a surge in her self confidence.
She was so happy. And so was I!
Sophie scooted around for about 45 minutes while Clara enjoyed some snacks and practiced her balance and jumping on various small ramps.
Afterwards, we headed over to the playground where Soph decided to make some sidewalk chalk drawings....
Just what does a Scooter Girl draw after some fun at the Skate Park?
What does Mom draw?
Yes, my heart felt SO FULL.
I LOVE my Scooter Girl!!!
