This year is little boy’s first attempt on ice skating. He was very eager after seeing the other two put on their skating shoes. As expected, the first time is never too easy. He fell down a lot of times, on his butt, sideways, and all the possible ways he could fall. Er gibt aber nicht auf. What determination…he stood up as many times as he fell.
After learning to stand up and walk with the skates on, he was able to skate little by little. Still, he would fall down when he can’t get his balance.
So the second time we went skating we borrowed the helpful penguin. It’s supposed to support the kid and help him skate by pushing. Good enough, the little boy balanced himself after a few minutes of pusing.
