There is a new ice skating rink that just opened up right around the corner from my high school. For mutual (a weekly church activity) we went and had a blast! We were there for an hour and half and I managed to only fall twice! (I fell right on my knee though, and I have the biggest bruise now)
I haven't been ice skating in a year or more, so as we started I was really really nervous to fall down. I was trying to skate and hold onto the side but I couldn't really get the hang of it. So I eventually just trusted myself and fell down a couple times, but got more and more confident as the night went on!
If you haven't gone outdoor ice skating yet, I totally encourage it. It is SO fun.
