Yesterday was Joel's first ever skating lessons. He did wear bob skates last winter a couple of times (bob skates have two blades and strap onto boots) but this is the real deal - with a teacher, at an arena, with real skates and a "goalie" helmet. It felt so so familiar to me ... when I was little I took skating lessons too (I went the figure skating route and quit when I was 13 because it was just too cold for me.) Joel's first lesson was how to get up when you fall ... he was so cute and he caught on really quick. By the end of the class he was taking "baby steps" as he called them. I'm sure in the next few weeks he is going to take off! It was fun to be there watching with Daddy and Josh and our Grandmas as well as a friend who's son is taking lessons at the same time.
Today I finished the back of Joel's quilt. I am now ready to put together the quilt sandwich. This is the fun stage ... (okay, it's all fun).
