Skating With Skyler

DD has taught skating for years and finally the real test took place this year with her eight year old stepson Skyler. He had a ball and begged for daily outings. :) He learned to fall on his bum, no crying. A real champ! He also lifts his feet already and can weave his feet out and in. We all cheered him on.

Home for hot chocolate!

Good job Skyler!

RE: Skating With Skyler

I'll second that!

Wish I could stand on skates :)

GBug...brings back lots of memories! Thanks for sharing!
Skyler and Reed together on that sled...precious!


RE: Skating With Skyler

Wish she could teach me to skate!


RE: Skating With Skyler

Saucy and V, she'd love to teach you. She's taught adult women before, women who thought "never..." and ended up loving it and playing hockey to boot! I must have done something right. I was taught to scorn sports of any kind, but decided that since winter lasts forever, my kids had better love it somehow.

RE: Skating With Skyler

Great pictures! Great job Skyler! And that Reed is as cute as they get!
I could never stand up on ice skates, but was fairly good on roller skates.
We siblings did a lot of sleding, and even talked our mother into joining us a few times. :-) Our 'hills' were the railroad tracks and the ramps at the grain elevators.
I'd say that is a pretty proud grandfather....:-), but I am sure he can not compete with grandmother.
