The problem with winter sports is that – follow me closely here – they generally take place in winter.~Dave Barry

We took the kids ice skating on Saturday afternoon.  I think they liked the adventure of it but I’m not sure how much they liked the actual ice skating.  They seemed a little shocked when I told them the ice skates were supposed to hurt.  They both gave it a good try…we were there almost a whole hour.  The plan is to try a few more times this winter to see if they can get used to the fun and pain of winter sports.  And then we’ll try skiing!
