In training

In an effort to help Tim and I prepare for marriage my parents have divulged my childhood pictures. I guess they want Tim to know full well what he's getting into. This was a typical day of after school play. We liked to play at Kristi's house after school as it would be a whole 60 minutes before her mom arrived home. With neighbors next door and speed dial on the phone we were certainly safe.....well except for our own mischief. On this particular day in February Kristi and I decided we hadn't had a fair shot a bobbing for apples during our schools Halloween celebration. It was an annual tradition hosted by the 4 th grade class and we felt slighted. It seemed to us you stood in line forever and then had only one bob until the next year. We decided to fill the laundry sink with water add some apples and start bobbing. Some may classify us as uber dorks while others may think we were pretty cool to entertain ourselves so well:)

In the spring and fall we would roller skate up and down the street putting on "shows" these choreograohed routines we dragged our parents to see. We planned to get really good at them so we could start charging admission. At the particular "show" below we had one guest Kristi's dog, Muffin. If you look closely you will see Muffin is more interested in out treats than the roller skating show.
Now you might really think we are uber dorks dancing around on roller skates. I got news for you that was 1980 something and rollerskates were cool.

I think you have some rollerblades in your closet - maybe you should take them out for a "routine"...

The baking treats we see in the picture....couldn't they tell us of another little episode of growing up at the Pointe?
