Here are some photos/videos of his 1st time on ice. He is such a natural! We have inline skates at home that he uses, but he hasn't ever touched the ice or actual hockey skates. We talked a lot about it before we went. We told him at first he will have to hold on to the side or hold Daddy's hand and he may fall. Boy, were we wrong! That child hit the ice and took off. After 1 loop around he told Daddy not to hold his hand anymore, and he could do it alone. He even made a new friend. This particular ice rink has 8 week skating lessons they are currently in the middle of, so we are thinking of starting him May 1 for the lessons. We aren't sure how it will go, but he is such a natural it is worth a try. We plan to take him a couple more times in April before he starts. After that, they have something called integration where they teach some hockey skills. Then, they allow kids to join a leagues if they test high enough. Only time will tell, but I have faith in him.
