School’s in. Now the after school activities are beginning. Tonight is back to Speed Skating! Yay! Ice rinks!
Our son has returned to begin his seventh year. His older sister has also decided to return after a four year hiatus. She was doing Cheer Leading during this time. But now she wants to get back into competition speed skating.
Unlike our daughter. Her first few steps were wobbly and a bit fearful. Much like riding a bike, she figured it out and began gaining her confidence. As the skating season continues, I’m excited to watch them both improve.
Our oldest child has also decided to return to the ice. Unlike her brother and sister though, she will be volunteering her time as a junior coach and at the various meets. To graduate high school she needs a certain amount of volunteer hours. This should help her out tremendously.
So we are back to spending our Wednesday & Friday nights at the rink. Plus the occasional weekend. Parenting is a good way to transfer your social life over to your children’s. At least the other parents here are in the same boat.
