Wordful Wednesday – Ice Skating

Wordful Wednesday 411Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words. It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try. Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

Ice Skating

My girls received ice skating lessons as a gift for Christmas.  Every Saturday since the beginning of 2012 we’ve spent a lot of time at the rink for their lessons and free skate time.

It’s been really fun to see them go from being super unsure on the ice to gliding around and doing “stuff”.

And one of the best parts?  They get to hang with their cousin and have a little girl time.

One of these days I’m going to rent a pair of skates and join them.  I think.

When was the last time you went ice skating?

Have you been over to visit my co-host Amanda at Parenting by Dummies yet?

And, as a special thank you to you for participating, we’ll be linking up to 4 of our favorite Wordful Wednesday entries from the previous week ech week! Be sure to visit them as well.  I guarantee they’ll love the visit!

    We went right before Christmas. Dumb Dad & #3 hated it. #2 must’ve fallen a hundred times but he loved it anyway. #1 has been numerous times but he’s still not really a fan. Me? I’m pretty awesome at it. Of course:)

    Girl time is the best, especially at their ages, especially with family.

    I haven’t been ice skating in at least five years, since my oldest was in first grade maybe. I took lessons when I was her age, for three or four years so I wonder if it’d all come back to me (like riding a bike. Even though the first time I rode a bike after 10+ years I fell and skinned my knees like I was three).

    I used to go ice skating all the time as a kid. Then somehow 20 years flew by and I had 2 little boys of my own who wanted to try it. I brought my sons ice skating for the first time when they were 4 and 6. I had to hold them up on their skates the whole time. But I was surprised that it all came back to me, and I was able to skate fast, and backwards, and impress my kids :)

    That brings back memories for me! I spent a lot of time as a kid ice skating. Of course, I haven’t been in probably 20 years and would probably break my neck now! It looks like your girls are having a wonderful time! Also, thanks for featuring my post from last week!

    I haven’t been in SO long, although I have gone roller skating, but it’s not the same…

    The girls look great out there and you should definitely join them! :)
