Skating again for the first time

This afternoon we took the kids to the nearby outdoor ice rink to try they legs at ice-skating. It’s been a couple of years since the last attempt with the older two kids, and little Eliot hasn’t ever been in skates. The older two took to skating like ducks to water. They had no troubles getting used to the ice, and were off on their own within seconds. Eliot was brave and skated around with our help until we found a metal frame for him to hold on to. After about an hour with the frame he was brave enough to try hands free. I am still shocked at how well balanced he was. He was even doing spins…no really!! He was spinning, on purpose, in one spot, without falling. Needless to say, we’ll be trying the ice-rink again likely next weekend.20160124-IMG_8573 20160124-IMG_8566 20160124-IMG_8574 20160124-IMG_8579 20160124-IMG_8581 20160124-IMG_8585 20160124-IMG_8590

Beautiful day to be skating outdoors. Way to go Eliot for your first time on skates. Way to go Judah and Carys for remembering how to make those blades work on ice. They all look so very happy to be skating on the ice. <3 xo

Your kids look very grown-up. I saw someone the other day that reminded me of you. Nice to be able to pop on to your blog and see pics of your beautiful family. 🙂
