So you think you can skate?

I’ve never been able to watch a show or skating competition. The reason? It stresses me to death. I always wonder how these skaters arrive to stay on these blades mounted on steel shoes and able to move on an ice surface with so much ease!

In addition, some dare to create complicated breathtaking figures (this is the part where I close my eyes). For example: turn on themselves as if they had no bones under the skin, jump in the air and bounce on skates, often without falling, mama mia …

And then, with my family, we decided to go skating. Yes, you understand me. I tell myself that if I try, maybe I will fight my phobia of ice skating.

Only … when I set foot in the ice skate ring (with my  skate shoes on of course), I decided to create my own rules in skating:

Rule 1: skate as close as possible to the boards around the ring.

Rule 2:Skate hand in hand with someone who share your life: it’s safer! IMG_0550

Rule 3: move slowly and never leave your eyes of your skates.

Rule 4: prohibit talented children to skate around learners. Seriously, how do they get to learn so fast … sigh …

And if it’s too hard, then I will stay behind the camera to capture and appreciate the incredible talent of my FANTASTIC FIVE skaters!
