Rachel at the Rink




We took our 4 yr old grandniece to her very first time ice skating today. She was a little uneasy on the ice but before an hour was up had managed a few little jumps while holding my hand. Back at her home, in sock feet on the carpet, she was ready for the Olympics. She gave her mom a series of demonstrations of her skating technique, with each jump higher and more elaborate than the previous one.

I did my first ice skating when I was 50+ years old. It was fun. I've never fallen, but then, I only went twice. One with a youth group (my first time), and then with Essie in Manila. I've never been ice skating with Hannah.

Hannah and Esther's dad - I was tagged and didn't know it!

Now Neil honey, I thought you "don't fly" (as in to Incheon to see Noah). How did you get to Manilla? Or, was it the trip to Manilla that turned you against air travel?
