THE NON-SPORTY KID SKATES! 17 January 2016 in Hunter, HUNTER, CARTER & CHLOE, Hunter's progress

Hunter’s never been much of an athlete. Not that I’d ever expected it of him, since Chris and I are quite possibly the most sedentary humans that I know of. He’s always shown zero interest in ball sports, or team sports, for that matter....
