I took my daughter ice skating recently for the first time. I remember my first time, and it wasn't pretty. I helped her with her skates and was telling her about the rail she could hold onto, and also was telling her be careful when she falls not to have her hands out for someone else to skate over. To my surprise, she took off skating like she'd done it her whole life. I'm not kidding, she was a natural. She even figured out how to turn around and end up facing the same way. Just remembering her skating makes me smile.
