The task before him was a daunting one. He faced it bravely but with a little uncertainty.
Being at least a year younger than any of his peers out there, and a good foot shorter, he bravely entered the rink at the National Sports Center here in Blaine, Minnesota. As always this little ‘chick magnet’ had the girls latching on to him right away!
Very strong on doing things his own way…when everyone else was down, he was up!
When others were up and waiting for further instruction, he would just lay down and take a break.
After the initial assessments were made of everyone in his class the instructor decided who would get skating aids and who didn’t need them.
Yep….our little man was the only one in his class that didn’t need a skating aid. Who knew he’d be such a natural! (and then there is his Dad that plays hockey and the frozen lake behind his house that his parents take him on sometimes)
He was actually a little upset that the instructor wouldn’t give him a skating aid like the other kids. Too young really to understand why…he just wanted what the other kids had. We explained it to him better later.
As you can see, concentration is a must to become such an excellent ice skater!
And when you get tired you just…
Kee, your Meema and Bampa are very very proud of you!
