Last Saturday, Natalie went skating for the very first time. Natalie always says that she "doesn't like to go fast" so I was surprised when she said she was interested to try skating, although she was probably influenced by her cousins Vanessa and Victoria who take skating lessons. Even more surprising, I am AMAZED that she was brave enough to skate without holding my hand!
Video 412 - Watch Natalie skating for the first time. Here she is happily skating with her cousin Nicholas (he is also a beginner skater) and this is her third time around the rink.
Below is a photo of our skating blockade. We took up almost the whole lane for a short time (just 2 minutes) and moved at a snail's pace for the beginners, Natalie and Nicholas.
I'm so proud of her for doing such a great job! Now she says she wants skating lessons...
