Emery on Ice

Today Emery tried to skate for the first time. She was some what excited but was unsure about how it will work. She was very tentative when she got on the ice and was very careful to make sure she did not fall. She held Ashley’s hands very closely and timidly took step by step.

She did this for a few laps and as she got more used to it she started to take steps on her own. She seemed to get the balance really well and was able to walk briskly and then glide a bit. She had a good time but her hands were cold and she eventually wanted to stop. Skating with Emery reminded me of the first time Ashley and I were on a date at the Frog pond.
