Field trip fun! I took the three oldest kids ice skating for the first time last week. We had a great time! Two Thursdays a month our homeschool co-op has negotiated a "Homeschool Skate," where we homeschool nerds get to take the rink over and fly around the ice to non-Justin Bieber-like tunes for a ridiculously cheap price. Love it.
I wasn't sure how the kids would do considering that this was our first time skating, but the rink offered little walkers to let them get a feel for the ice, and that was a big help.
Max completely dug it and never stopped smiling. Chloe was a little apprehensive about falling but was very determined. Sam hung out for about a half hour and then sat on the bench and ate pretzels. Whatever works.
Here are a few pics of my little skaters:
