I have wanted to go ice skating forever. Greg is never into it. But on New Year's I suggested it, and he finally gave in. He held Hannah while I took the kids onto the ice (I went once about 5 years ago, so it was only my second time), and it may not have been my best idea ever. Two small people clinging to my legs while I tried to move around the rink as a novice myself was slightly terrifying. But I got all the way around (I think the first circle took about 20 minutes) without any of us hitting the ice! And then I changed our method. I took one child at a time around the ice, holding both their hands, while the other watched with Greg and Hannah. It worked well, and we actually had a great time.
(Next time though, we are going to a rink that has the little PVC pipe walker things.)
