My friend Stacia gave us a couple pairs of kids hockey skates a month ago. When a bunch of homeschoolers decided to meet up at “The Muck”, we went to watch the other kids skate. I packed a pair just in case, but didn’t think V would be interested in getting on the ice…So I was surprised when she asked to put on a pair. She loved it and asked to go back again.

We learned a tip from several people to start her off with a chair.

Having an older kid around helps. The Muck was super bumpy!

A bit more confident. I brought the chair (foreground left) but she refused to let me put it in the rink.

Most importantly, learning to fall down and get up.
