putting my feet on ice, I might need one of those.
|Getting back on her feet|
One kindergartner from Aaliyah's school, helped Ayaan take his first steps on ice. Her name was Sonja. She was a confident skater and was able to skate without the rails. She skated with Ayaan and helped him skate from end to end. Ayaan got tired very soon and didn't want to skate anymore. So, Nasir, took Ayaan to watch an ice hockey game that was going on in an adjacent rink. I stayed with Aaliyah.
Aaliyah cannot wait to go back to the skating rink again. Her desire has made this first attempt at ice skating well worth it.
