We have finished our skating. We had a great time over 9 weeks, and the older two children progressed from complete novices to being able to skate independently. We took Pip on the ice sometimes in a stroller, and Ben also tried out skating, but he didn't like it as well. Being able to push Pip in the stroller helped keep one's balance! In this picture you see a train, with a friend, Rachel, on the end.
