Danica spent much of TG weekend learning to ride a two-wheeler. She didn't really want much help but just got on and worked and worked in the quiet dead end by the house. By the time we got there, she pretty well had it mastered. It isn't a long stretch, so turning around was a problem that was really slowing her down, but by the end of the weekend, she was doing oh so well. I was impressed with her determination and sticktoitiveness.
Meanwhile, little brother has been enrolled in hockey. As a Canadian lad, this is a good thing. But JJ is much more cautious about life and is the kind of guy who needs to warm up to something gradually. He was that way in swimming lessons this summer, dreading letting go. Toward the end of the two-week session, however, he did let go and surprised his teachers. Likewise, in these early days, he's way behind the other kids when it comes to skating, but hopefully, he'll soon get his bearings.
|He looked good while still on dry land in shoes.|
|Steps were short and very hesitant.|
|Much time was spent alone both at and on centre ice.|
|He did receive much help and attention — to which he responded with reluctance.|
|The coaches even brought him to the net where he scored a goal.|
|Meanwhile, Danica ran about with great gusto.|
