Skating Lesson #6 this morning

*BIG SMILES TODAY!*

I wish I had taken my video camera and taped today's entire lesson, so that I could have edited the footage in order to show you the SMILES on my girl's face when she CONQUERED a new skill. The expression on her face was priceless. She beamed!!! And I noticed that she was watching Coach to see if Coach caught it, too.

Blogging is one way for us to review each lesson, and sometimes to preview a concept or skill for the future. Sometimes, my princess does not like to watch herself on video. (Sometimes I don't like to watch MYself on video, either!) Blogging allows us to share moments with family and friends who live far away, too.

I'm including lots of video clips from today's session-- they are all really SHORT clips.

Working on maintaining control and balance is tough work:


Putting a lot of skills together. Coach says, first, watch me, then you do it:





Skating backwards. This one is especially for our RDI(r) PROGRAM CERTIFIED CONSULTANT (this clip captures one of our current objectives):



Watch her make a discovery or two as she skates backwards today (you may need a Kleenex for this one):


Learning to make Snowplow Stops

Coach is demonstrating the next skill to work on:
