The kids got Heelys for Christmas. It was one of the big things that they had asked for.

Unfortunately it was rather dreary on Christmas, so they didn't really get a chance to try them out until the next day.

Here they are trying to get the wheels into the shoes.

And here you can see M trying to get the hang of the Heelys.

It takes a lot longer to get the hang of Heelying than either of the kids had guessed. We were talking to one kid last week who said it took him 5 months to really get it. A has been out practicing with our neighbor and has gotten a bit better - he can roll for short distances now. He says that downhill is easier - I can believe it, sort of like riding a bike. Speaking of which, it's really time to get A back on the bike again for some more practice...
