The Scooter Gang

We bought the kids scooters for their birthdays. I was a little worried that we were going to have lots of falls at first, but I was shocked to see that they immediately knew what to do with them and the scrapes were minimal.

They all have them in their favorite color-orange (Abby), pink (Marie), and green (Will).

We make sure they are in the appropriate safety gear-helmets, elbow and knee pads, and gloves.

Here they are modeling their safety gear.

Abby got on and started riding like she had been on a scooter every day of her life. By day 2, she mastered using the brakes.

Will hunches over on his like a little old man. At first, Marie couldn't figure out how to push with one foot and keep one on, but after a few minutes, she got the hang of it.
