Last weekend, we hit the ice with our friends, Ginna and Sallie Key. I am so lucky to have such a good friend in a coworker/neighbor who also happens to have a little girl 8 months older than Helen Grace.
The girls were so excited to ice skate as it was Sallie Key’s first time. I think HG was brazened by that and decided she wasn’t going to use a walker to skate. Before we started, she was really cute as she showed SK how to get up when she fell, how to use the walker, etc. She did really well on the ice, although we moved at the speed of a snail. She fell a time or two but didn’t complain a bit. She did wear out kind of quickly and requested a trip to the snack bar, in which we were happy to oblige.
They both took to the ice so well that we teased them that we may see them in the Olympics one day! We might have to have an Olympic ice skating watch party to educate them because they both looked at us like they had no idea what we were talking about. We have a lot of teaching to do!
