|If you can pretend I'm not holding onto the railing I look quite impressive, don't I.|
To the left side of the photo Shawn is showing Euan the basics of ice skating,
and to the right you can see Jon helping Ellie get used to the ice.
|Elias spent a fair amount of time dangling from Jon like a Christmas ornament on a tree.|
|Ellie, almost 3, amazed us all by having pretty good |
balance on her cute little strap-on 2 bladed ice skates.
|Euan loved it, spending most of his time skating without help,|
falling down and popping right back up to skate some more.
|Grandma? Well, she was quite good at falling down--one time even considering|
making a snow angel while laying flat on her back on the ice--but not so good
at the popping back up....
|no, for Grandma, getting back up "takes a village."|
|Okay, so a couple of those falls caused a very bruised and swollen|
left hand, and led to a visit to the First Aid booth for an ice pack
held to her hand by gauze wrappings. Plus she now has
an official Incident Report filed in England.
|Notice the lovely shade of purple on the left hand.|
A great time was had by all. And while I may have come away with bruises on my hand, knees, elbows, and pride, I came away without a single regret.
