For nearly an hour we skated hand in hand, until finally he had the hang of it, well enough to let go.
Mommas - go now and teach your young sons how to ice skate. It's as good as a big long hug!
I didn't think I'd get a picture of him skating because I could not hold him up and take pictures too. (I'm no Dorothy Hamill people.)
All too soon, he knew how to go under his own power, without holding my hand and giggling at my attempts to keep us both upright.
