M & G have been begging to hit the ice skating rink, so today was the day. Ice skating isn’t my fave…I’m too much of a wimp in the cold, but I’d much rather be in the rink then sitting it out on the sidelines.
Here’s who else went for an Xmas skate:
This group shuffles around the edge of the rink, clinging to the side-rail, taking baby steps all the way. They’re not in control of their legs which is why they move at a snail’s pace. Without the wall there would be no ice skating for them.
The Playin’ It Safe’ers
These skaters move away from the wall. They’re comfortable on the ice, yet don’t try anything new. They just glide by.
The Go For The Flow Peeps
It’s not about experience with this group. They’re out there, in the center of the rink, giving it their all. When they fall, they fall big. But they’re in it to win it…they’re there to have fun.
The Show Your Soul’ers
This group is similar to the Go For The Flow Peeps except they’ve mastered the skill of ice skating, and transformed it into an expression of the soul. I love watching them float on ice.
**Both M & G started as Wall-Crawlers, but eventually graduated to becoming Go For The Flow Peeps. I had my proud mom moment when G says, “It’s good to fall because it means you’re trying.”
How do you do on the ice skating rink?
