Ice Skating lessons

A few miles away from our house is a huge park--at least for being in a well populated area.  It has a large lake in it, swimming pool, boathouse, tons of playgrounds, trails and an ice skating rink  In the winter they have two, four week sessions of free

ice skating lessons.  Hannah and Jonathan wanted to give it a try so we signed them up.  They have loved it.

Jonathan testing the hardness of the ice within 5 minutes of getting there.  He did eventually stay on his feet for more than 10 seconds at a time.
Hannah was slowly but surely making her way out to her group.
Right now their metric for success is whether or not it hurt when they fell down and how much ice they have on their pants when they are done.  It's fun to watch them.  Next year, I think we'll try for both sessions.
