I am proud.
My little boy went skating for the first time today.
Now... he had a tough time. He was crying a lot because it was scary and hard. But he kept asking to try again, and that's a start.
Skating is hard. Especially for a 3 year old who is still developing the strength to do, well, everything. But he tried and that's a great start.
I'll never forget today. It was an odd passing of the torch for me. I remember my dad lacing up my skates and watching em struggle. He was proud too, even though I whined probably worse than my son hahaha.
I hope this is truly a beginning for him. Hockey is a great sport. One that people play well into adulthood. I once played with a 78 year old retiree. True story.
My thanks to the Syracuse Figure Skating Club and their learn to skate program. We will be back for the next session because it only will get easier from here. Also to Lysander Ice Arena for being a great community rink. Get more about both below:
