Ice Skating Lessons

Today both Jillian and Olivia began ice skating lessons! Jillian was super excited about going! I had to keep talking to her all day about falling down 🙂 I knew it was inevitable and I wanted her to be okay with it. The girls did really well.

Jillian had an issue before she touched the ice, while practicing on the floor she hurt her finger, and since we didn’t explore other injuries occurring  she was quite upset. Once the class started towards the ice, she was over the hurting finger.  She fell a lot but overall it was a great first day.

Olivia has fantastic balance! She only fell a few times, unfortunatly towards the end of the class she was over it! On her last fall, I could tell that she was fighting back the tears. When her instructor tried to get her to stand back up, the waterworks began. She was so upset that the instructor had to pick her up and skate around with her. Luckily she is not discouraged, they are already talking about next week. I think it really helped that Adrian was able to be there too! He was able to help in all the positive self esteem building 🙂

Hello 2013!

I haven’t made any New Year’s Resolutions but I am anticipating an exciting 2013! Our Baby Girl is due in May and I’m excited to meet her. I hope we can pick a name!! Jillian will be entering Kindergarten in September, WOW, where did the time go??? Olivia is potty training and will be attending preschool in September, which is just as crazy as Jillian entering Kindergarten! I’m also turning 30 this year and I feel very accomplished with my 30 before thirty list 🙂
