The laces for my skates finally came in and I was able to take Tavish skating. This was Tavish's first time skating in real skates (last year I took him but he used double blade skates). It was really fascinating to see how well he improved over the course of the hour. When he first put his skates on he could not walk on the ground without his ankles rolling in but by the time we were ready to leave he could skate a short distance from me to my dad. I really need to find him lessons.
