Darcy and I both play sports, hockey, ball hockey specifically so getting our girls interested in skating is kinda a big deal for us....cause I am expecting to be hanging around arenas for the better part of the next 10 years.
The girls went skating for the first time this past weekend. My mom had got them a pair of bob skates, so we strapped them on the took them out. To our delight they were excited!
They walked, and ran and tried to slide, but in the end they mostly walked or ran. They were so proud of themselves for not falling. " Mommy I didn't even falled, nope not one time. Can we go again next time?" It was such a positive experience and that was my goal.
