Baseball and Figure Skating

Busy sports day in my family yesterday.

My homeschooler got some inexpensive ice time to practice the skills she's been learning.

And my son had a baseball game.

Here's my boy making contact with the ball at bat:

She tries some one-foot glides and a little slalom practice on her own:

And then I asked her (and asked and asked and asked) to practice the dreaded backwards skating. So, I made her. And you can see the anxiety rise inside her. She hasn't made the disovery that she's quite capable of skating backwards:

I needed a "no whine zone" sign for that!
