The boys have been in skating lessons for nearly eight months now and recently moved from "Hockey Tots" to a big-boy hockey class. Aside from the realization we need to start investing in real hockey gear (cha-ching), the transition has been a smooth one.
Both boys enjoy hockey and provide us with endless laughs and material to haunt them with later. James, for example, is a talker and loves to chit-chat with his pretty skating instructors during his turn in class. This has changed quite a bit however, since the big-boy class is coached by a real manly hockey player. We've never seen him so quiet. Jonathan, on the other hand, is all business and is very fast and seems at-ease on the ice, turning, skating backwards and crashing into walls (all on purpose). He isn't afraid to mix it up on the ice, which has Dan believing he's got a little Happy Gilmore in him - enthusiastic and clumsy at the same time.
