I swore I would never get the kids a scooter, because of all the hazards that come with it. Well, Nat's boss was going to get rid of his, and asked if there would be any takers. Nat jumped at the opportunity, without even talking to me first. All I can say, it was FREE. My favorite spending method! The kids saw it and haven't stopped practicing since. Jim also found Charlies old skateboard and is having fun on that too.
