When in Rome...

So now that we've lived in Chicago for 6 years, I figured we should start embracing winter sports now that the girls are getting older. With that in mind, I signed all of us for ice skating lessons at the local park district rink. The girls were lucky enough to get walkers so off they went.

In less than 5 minutes, Kate had abandoned her walker and was making her way around the rink. Sure she fell a lot but she kept getting back up and by the end of 45 minutes was pretty good at staying upright. Lucy took a little longer to get her ice legs, which totally surprised me because she's usually the more adventurous one. By the end though, she was holding her own on the ice.

Len, as you can see in the picture below, hugged the wall for a two laps and finally made his way across the rink back and forth a couple of times.

I did one lap hugging the wall and then went across the rink 5 times without falling.
Hopefully by the end of the course we'll all be able to at least glide around with some confidence. Right now we all are stomping, flat-footed with arms splayed in front, praying we remain upright.
