Roller rinks may have started in the but they were the backdrop to my childhood in the Skating backwards got you reaaaaaly noticed. My Aunt and Uncle had a portable skating rink that set up in Gymnasiums
I loved my plaid dresses as a kid. I went to a school where all the girls wore dresses to school. We could wear pants under our dresses on gym days and winter days, but we had to take them off once gym class was over or we got to school.
