This week Nathan and Emily started doing power skating after school. Emily does it on Monday and Nathan on Wednesday. Power skating is a beginning level of hockey. The kids do drills and scrimmage. Nathan is actually doing it with a younger group as they do not offer it to the 5th grade, the 5th graders are on the hockey team. The coach has agreed to let Nathan do it with the 2nd and 3rd graders to help him get comfortable and gain some confidence. Emily is so much fun to watch, it is right up alley. She loves getting out there and sliding on the ice and skating. Nathan plays hockey very much like he plays soccer, speeds up to get the puck and works it to the goal, I am amazed at how similar the two sports are. They are both getting a workout and I am building up my tolerance to the cold. IT is FREEZING in the ice rink!
