My boy’s homemade birthday card to his best friend.
These picks are from 2 weeks ago when it was just the kids and I. One of my friends just happened to be there for a birthday party, she took a few shots of us. It was the first time the kids ever ice skated inside. For the last 2 years we have skated on the pond but it is not the same. I saw a big difference in their skating, especially Leah. The first time there she did not want to let go of my hand. Last Sunday she was skating with a chair and buzzing around the rink like a pro skater (minus the chair). She looked up at me and said, “ok Mom, you can go now.” I said “what, like skate away from you”. She said “yeah, let me skate alone”. Little shit, 6 years old and she’s shooing her Momma away. The teenage years should be INTERESTING!
I went skating often as a child. Skating was one of my fondest childhood memories. I went to both indoor arenas and an outdoor arena on “Sand Hill”. (only the locals know where that is) When I was young it was purely for fun and play and as I got older it was to see the boys. 🙂
I remember longing to be a figure skater when I grew up. I guess it’s a good thing I moved on to wanting to be a nurse because I am not that gracious.
On a final note. ALL my wrapping is DONE!!!!!!! Celebration….I locked myself in the wood stove room with beer and a radio last night. Now we have the weekend to bake, make crafts, listen to Christmas music and ENJOY!
Yeeeee HA, can you tell I am excited?
