Last night I ventured to Oaks Centre Ice, to prepare for the River Rink to open next month.
When I arrived, I ran into the neighbours that live behind us. Their daughters have to be around 4 and 7 and they were learning how to skate. As we were lacing up our skates, it was nice to catch up. As I was skating, I passed the youngest one a few times and she kept waving over to me, while saying, “hi neighbour! Look, I’m skating!” It made me so happy.
I also skated without holding on. I remembered my lessons back from March and that brought a smile to my face too. I can’t wait for Vitamin Ice season to be in full force.
