We got the kids into their skates, and Steve tentatively headed out onto the ice with the kids. Since I didn't want to risk falling and hurting myself (and the baby), I stayed on the sidelines and took photos and cheered them on.
At first they were both a little timid and afraid to hurt themselves (they both fell within seconds of hitting the ice), but after 20 minutes they were trying to make it around the rink by themselves.
Pres was soaking wet from falling so many times, but he always had a smile on his face, and he kept getting braver and eventually moved away from the exterior wall. It took Bennett a little longer to feel that confident, but she got there too.
