For me, skating is relaxing. Its calming. Free. And the 2 big kids can go on their own. So skating with them or around them is so much fun! Makes me feel good! I am not a great skater myself. I can go fast and not fall, but I dontmknow how to stop properly. I fear of falling flat on my face! Haha!! I was trying to figure it out myself, going slow, and I think I know what to do now. I got to show the kids what to do. Its great to encourage the kids and help them when needed.
Seeing them starting out clumsy, falling, and struggling to stay up and then see them on their own making their way and trying over and over to do better (and are doing better) is just awesome! What an experience!!
So far, Daniel has gone 5 times, Alaina has gone 3 and this was Julia’s first time! The four of us had a great day!!
