The older three kids had the day off ... yes, you read that right... another day off.
After all, they do go to the school that seems to have the most holidays in the whole entire universe. You can read more about that here.
Given that it was a holiday and a birthday, I thought we should do something special. We had been talking about doing a family ice skating outing. The older three take skating lessons and Miss C always has to go along and is just fit to be tied that she is not able to do it yet. So it was decided... ice skating for her birthday. Sounds fun, right?
You must also live in my World of Delusion ;-)
Here is Miss Cuteness getting geared up...
- I am no longer what I would call a "strong skater."
- I need to do start doing core work.
I would have liked to have gotten more pictures, but I was the only adult in our group and was hard-pressed to just stay upright (more like hunched over yet not fallen down) let alone get some photos of the event. I tried enlisting the older kids to that end, but to no avail...they seemed more interested in bickering over who was going to get what kind of candy bar from the vending machine when we were done.
I do give the experience two big thumbs up, however. And I look forward to doing it again :) Really.
After I do a little core work, maybe... and Miss C learns a little more about 'body tension'.
Do you like ice skating? Roller skating? Which do you think is easier?
