Tyler and I took Makenna ice skating for the first time today. She was so excited to get her skates and go out on the ice. She used a walker to help her skate on the ice. She was slipping and sliding. Tyler and I helped her hang onto the walker and also held her hands. She wanted to give up right away, but Ty and I talked her into continuing. She would skate for about 10 minutes and then want about a 1 minute break off the ice. We ended up skating for about 1.5 hours. There was a girl there that was doing fancy ice skating tricks and Makenna was in awe! She kept saying, "mommy, I'm not good at this. Look at her...wow! I can't do tricks yet." She was so funny. I was so proud of her that she got up each time she fell and wanted to try harder to learn how to skate. She kind of got the hang of it and tried doing it all by herself a few times! I had to keep telling her that we aren't always great at something the first time we try it. We have to practice! It was a good "date" with her today!
