Skating Season Winding Down
With highs of 14 and sunshine forecast for this week, I think it's safe to say that skating season is kinda over. Myron and I played hockey Friday night, but that's probably it for me. I thought I'd throw together a few of the last little video clips as a goodbye to a great skating winter. This medley's got Ella pushing Sloane in the stroller, me messing around on the Dueck rink, bits of Ivy's big skating club finale at the arena, and I think a short clip of Ivy trying out her sweeeet new bike (not skating, I realize, but a symbolic transition into spring).
This evening I went for a great ride on Rattlesnake Mountain and found it to be in excellent condition (aside from the brand-new clear-cut through the middle of the trail half-way in...grrrrr), so let the fun begin.
Oh, and in the clips of Ivy's skating show, she's the one with the helmet. I was the ogre who insisted on safety, not realizing that every other kid in her group was going without one for the show (despite having worn them for every other class). Sigh. Maybe I'm just a tiny bit over-protective. It didn't seem to ruin it for her at least -- she was thrilled with the whole thing.
