With each passing loop around the rink, I became more and more comfortable with skating around the turns and the straights.
Ben swapped his skates for figure skates and it was great to see him skating around and trying a few techniques he had learned a long time ago. He seemed to enjoy himself. I was happy we could share this experience.
