Emily's New Hobby

Emily decided a few weeks ago that she would like to
try to learn to ice skate. She has never been on skates
(other than one time on a field trip...but she never actually
skated) So this is a totally NEW thing for her. She did
a little research and found a place where she could take
lessons. She has had three lessons now and so far, she
is really enjoying it. It's going to take lots of practice.
The first day she must have fallen twenty times.--But she
took it well and learned the very valuable lesson of how
to get up when you fall. :)
The last lesson she had she only fell once! So, that
seems like a nice improvement. This season of
lessons will be for eight weeks. After that, we
may let her take some off and on.
I like to see her getting to do something like this
on occasion. She is having fun, making some
new friends (it's a homeschool group), plus
getting some great exercise.

Oh that looks like so much fun. That's a popular hobby lately. My BFF's 3 daughters are also taking lessons.
Think in I fell once I'd probably stay down! :0)
