Ice Follies

Took Peanut ice skating Saturday afternoon with Brad. This was their first introduction and it went really well. They seemed to like each other and both appeared to be very comfortable which makes me happy. More on that later.
I've wanted to learn how to ice skate for as long as I can remember, but I've been too afraid. I've always done that...been afraid to try things because I think I might fail...and I've missed out on a lot.
We laced up our boots and went out on the ice. Brad took Peanut around a few times and then she was pretty much able to make the track on her own (holding onto the rails only about 1/2 the time). She was in heaven! She's had a couple of lessons before, but it's been a good year and a half, if not two since the last lesson. I went ahead and did their 15 minute introductory lesson. I wasn't as clumsy as I thought I'd be. I probably made it around the rink 10 times...mostly with the coach, but a few times on my own after the lesson was over. I had so much fun.
I WENT SKATING!!!!! ...and I only fell once! I DID IT!!!! (Picture the little Peanut's Gang "happy dance" with Snoopy's nose up in the air and everyone be-boppin from side to side...that's what's going on in my brain at this moment).
We are definitely going back again. In fact, I've signed Peanut up for a 5-week summer session. I'll tell her today, she's going to be so excited.
And, who knows, maybe I'll take their adult class in the future.
Lookout world, this Drama Queen is just made for the Ice Follies!

Pinch Me

1st day of camp yesterday

Today is a really special day! Peanut has always taken Barkley with her to day care, school (tucked away in her backpack) and planned on bringing him to camp. I think she's maybe slept 1 night without him since she he was first put in her crib. The Barks goes everywhere! This morning her camp was going on a field trip. Last week I talked to her about Barkley going to camp with her. He must stay in her bag (unless it's free play time) and he's not allowed to go to camp on days they have field trips. I was waiting for a fuss this morning, waiting for crocodile tears...waiting, waiting...She gave Barkley a good long hug, and left him in the car! Oxygen, I need oxygen!!!! Somebody pinch me!!!!!
