Well, I called my husband, told him our new plans and we headed to a local ice rink this afternoon. I had good intentions of trying to skate myself, but I put on my skates and made it all of one foot inside the doorway of the rink on wobbly legs and chickened out, big time. Fortunately, my wonderful hubby was there to do the parental "on the rink" duties while I stood outside and watched with much enjoyment. The girls were so much fun to watch. Kara was a natural and she was so helpful with both of her sisters. Mia was a speedster along the outer rails of the rink and Leila picked it up and was doing quite well, too. Now, they all had their fair share of falls, too, but they quickly got back up with a smile on their face and tried again. I have so much to learn from them!
They started out without helmuts - until Mia had a fall and nearly hit her head hard on the ice. Of course, this mama ran quickly to grab the nearest helmuts.
The girls had a blast and can't wait to go ice skating again. I guess it's about time I learn.
