So we got to the rink, and the fact that it's a rink without boards (like I skated on, growing up), and the smell of the rink triggered...
...I don't know.
Smell memory is powerful ... I kind of teared up a little.
Porter had fun, and looks awesome in the knockoff Blue Skys pants I made for him:
I don't think it went as bad as I thought it would have!
The other skaters were SO nice and welcoming, and very patient with the million questions I had after the session.
I'm going to go watch a couple of them skate in a competition next week!
I posted the first, tenth, and last spins of the session over on my Instagram, here.
