The kids have been taking skating classes at different times this year because I didn't get around to registering them for class until too late (trying to coordinate classes is pretty annoying, sigh) It's actually worked okay as each kid got some one on one time with Mommy and Daddy but we're looking forward to when they get to go skating at the same time again!
They had skating shows at the end of their sessions this term and I got to try out my new skates for the first time while encouraging Matthew to skate into the middle and back again. He's actually got quite a fast shuffle forwards and can go backwards, if he wants to... Brendan says he spent many classes trying to convince him to listen to his teacher rather than crawl on the ice or play in the puddles left by the zamboni...
Elizabeth says she likes skating classes because she's very good at it. Her favourite part is doing crossovers. "That's when you put one foot over the other and you go in circles."
Elizabeth likes to go very fast and she also likes to jump. Daddy says she's officially exceeded his skill level. At least he still has an advantage in speed due to his long legs but we expect that won't last - she's frighteningly good at tag on skates!

Having much farther to fall, I suggest Daddy not challenge Elizabeth's lead... ;)
