Even though summer is over and school has started, it's still pretty warm here. Today after I finished cleaning my room and doing my other chores, I pulled out my roller blades. They were in the back of the closet and sort of dusty because I haven't used them in a long time.
My mom told me to wear a helmet, but I didn't really want to because I think it makes me look a little bit silly. But safety comes before fashion, I guess.
I was a little wobbly when I started. It took a few tries to really get my balance.
At first that funny Sunny would run behind and chase after me.
But after a little while he got worn out, and sat on the lawn instead. He barked whenever I came by.
I started going faster and faster. The wind felt cold on my face, and still I went faster!
I was going so fast I didn't even see the rock.
I fell down pretty hard, and both of my knees got scraped up a little bit. My left elbow did, too. It stung, and I could feel tears starting in my eyes.
But then Sunny came and comforted me. He knew just where it hurt, and gave me doggy kisses to make it feel better.
I'm glad I wore a helmet after all! Sunny helped me feel better and I got back up and skated back to the house to get my knees washed off.
