Last week Ryan asked me to help out with his class trip to the roller rink. Usually his field trips are planned for times when I'm at work so I jumped at this opportunity to spend time with him. When I arrived at the rink, the kids were already skating and he was looking around for me. His eyes lit up when he saw me. He told me I should go get skates on which I did apprehensively. (I might be good at ice skating, but roller skating is a different story!) We held hands and skated around the rink. He took me around to all his friends and introduced me to them. He was able to go much faster than I was comfortable going. He lapped me a few times, but he always came back to grab my hand. We skated the "Hokey Pokey" together and then it was time to get all the kids back on the bus. The time had gone so fast, but it was an hour that I will always remember.
