Skating is a difficult sport to learn but like anything if you keep at it you will eventually fall less and glide more. That is what little Emma is hoping for this winter. This is her first year on skates and while she has quickly shifted from light green ski runs to black diamonds in less than a year, skating proves more challenging as she steps gingerly across the rink.
“I don’t like skating, Mama. I just spend the whole time crying in my helmet,” she says.
Still, she gets out there and mostly, I see a wide smile on her face. Go, Ems!
“Emma, don’t touch that or Ellie is going to get mad at you.”
“James, she’s not going to know if we leave it here with her Num Noms on top.”
“Emma, she’s going to be mad.”
“James, I’ve been dealing with Ellie for a long time. We just need to leave it here like this when we’re done and she won’t know.”
We wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2018 filled with love and friendship.
It’s Christmas with Batman and Wonder Woman, of course!
