This is Me Out On the Ice!

Am I crazy? On my day off I volunteered to help out on a field trip to the ice rink.
I have not been on ice skates in years. To say I was wobbly is an understatement, not to mention freezing.
When the teacher asked for parents to help by being another set of eyes and ears, said, "Yes, sure, I'll ride the bus and help out." This is my daughter in the middle, Jessica and two of her friends.
Jessica looks pretty happy as she laces up her skates. Jessica looked like a pro out there. She did not teeter or fall once. She could go very fast too. I went very slowly and my ankles hurt terribly. I am used to four wheels, not one blade. Aside from being very very cold, I had a fun day with my daughter and her class. Enjoy your week, ladies. I hope to visit you all soon. Love, Kathi "Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken, but endures forever." Psalm 125:1

Looks like you had a fun day and it was really nice of you to volunteer like that!

I can't ice skate for the life of me...I'd probably break my ankles! HA HA

Hope your week is going well, Kathi!

That sounds like fun! I bet you're sore though! It was probably a good workout.

We're planning on taking the kids in our class to the ice skating rink pretty soon as well. Hope I don't fall! :)

Love you!

You look so hip and cool out there! But I'm with you, I'd take roller skates over ice skates anyday!

Kathi,

I love your blog! I really enjoy the pictures of your beautiful farm and sweet family stories. I would like to invite you to stop by my new blog. This is my first attempt, so it is not as professional as yours! I am blessed to have Sharon as my one and only follower! My site is a bit difficult to find for some reason, but here is the address:
http://shamrocks4him.blogspot.com. I seem to have to go to yahoo to find it. Thanks again for your sweet blog!
God bless you,
Molly

Ohhh just look at you on that cold ice! How sweet it must have been to spend time with Jessica and her friends that way... You know, I just love visiting with you and coming away with such a warm heart and a smile! As a child, I used to skate as much as possible each Winter... I have fond memories of all of us out there, twirling and laughing. We'd take breaks by the bon-fire and cradle hot mugs of cocoa in our cold hands before going back onto the ice for more twirling 'n fun... I sure do hope that your ankles are feeling much better, and that the rest of your week goes well for you...

God bless...

~hugs, love ♥ 'n prayers~

I'm so glad that you get to experience going on field trips! It looks like you had such a fun time! It's too bad it was so cold, but I guess that's how it has to be for ice skating!

Have a great week Kathi!
Love, Sharon
