Wow! That girl is an amazing ice skater! She can spin and leap in the air. I want to try. Oops! I bumped into someone. Sorry! I bumped into another person. Ouch! I fell down and hit my knee. That really hurt! I'm not very good at this. My brother wants to go home. No, I want to keep trying. I have determination. I can do this. I can ice skate, but I don't know how to do tricks. I watch figure skating on TV with my mom. It's a beautiful sport. My mother used to be a ballerina. She said the movements are similar. You need grace and coordination. Um, I'm not sure I have either. But I want to keep trying. I watch the ice skater practice. She is so graceful. She skates with ease. I finally get tired and decide to go home. While I'm packing my skates, I hear the ice skater yell something. Hey, you did great out there! Keep up the good work! Practice makes perfect! Wow! I feel much better! I can't wait to come back.
