Thomas is really enjoying ice skating lessons. Cuncle Johnnie (cousin/uncle) works at the rink and Thomas is so excited to be on the ice with him every week! Slowly but surely Thomas is making progress. He impresses me every week. He is so determined to be a good skater, even though it's surprisingly difficult and trying for him. This week was exceptionally difficult as we went to a Jump&Bounce birthday party beforehand. So he ran and jumped for a full hour and went right into skating. The poor kid fell one last time after an hour on the ice and just could not pull himself up. It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. He finally got off the ice and said, "Mama, I am exhausted!"
