...and even more of this.
Daughter is the skating director at two different outdoor ice rinks in Washington, DC and I've been helping out (for $$$) during the Learn to Skate classes. It's the closet thing I've had to snow in quite a while so I'm enjoying every minute of crawling around on the ice with toddlers. I also either help out with or teach (!) five classes of beginning adults that are a riot and a half. I didn't learn to skate myself until I was in my late 40's so I can definitely still feel their pain. The secret to success: gel pads and lots of them. Cover everything you don't want bruised, blistered or broken and then and only then is this skating thing fun.
