I took Carrie ice skating today for the first time, so she could wear the pink ice skates Santa was kind enough to bring her. I pretty much remembered how to skate forwards without falling, but I had a really hard time helping Carrie figure it out. She did make it around the rink three whole times, and only fell a couple of times.
We’re both signed up for lessons starting in a couple of weeks. I have to be crazy, but I never managed to teach myself how to skate backwards, and as long as I’m going to be going to the rink every Saturday morning for six weeks anyway, I may as well get out on the ice instead of sitting on the cold bleachers!
