We had the kids for three full days before Christmas and did our best to keep them busy. Sue prepared a number of crafts, and we took them to public skating at the arena twice. It was free for these days, sponsored by some business or other, but it isn't a very expensive proposition in any case. It is a nice and appreciated thing for businesses to do at Christmas though.
Danica improved somewhat from a few days prior when we saw her at her lessons. Sue advised her to lean forward more instead of standing straight up or even leaning backwards, and it seemed to help. For the most part, she would only push off twice — once with each skate — before going into a safe glide, but sometimes she did four or even more. Good going, (As you can see, she met a friend at on onee the the days, which was an unexpected treat for her.)
Jonathan did really well, even seeming to improve from the first to the second day, during which he did some pretty fancy maneuvers.
An just in case, you want more of both kids, here are two videos, one of each child. They are both about a minute long, give or take.
