Skating Superstar

My school had a skating party on Sunday. I went to see my students, and took Raegan along, since she could skate for free. This was her second time skating (we went in December for a church party). As soon as we got there, she asked for cake (because at church they gave us cupcakes after we skated). I thought that was pretty smart of her to remember that from over two months ago. The child's memory is insane!

Raegan wasn't nearly as nervous about it this time. After our second or third time around, she shook me off and said, "I do it Mama" and took off by herself. I hovered really close for awhile, but she never did fall, so I took some video on my iPod of her skating. The quality is kind of crappy, but ah well.

So CUTE!!!~ I pray she'll have good and fun times going around on skates!
I can still remember my first time skating when I was a little girl! Woo Hoo! I also remember my last time skating as a grown woman, which was weird as ever… I'd been skating since childhood, but now what's going ON??? Where was my balance??I Something is wrong! Anyway- that last time I skated also helped push me to get to a doctor- who diagnosed MS.
Okay. I didn't mean to be a downer. Skating rinks bring back great (and bittersweet) memories!!!
I rejoice that Raegan and family can skate on! Awesome! Little Miss "I do it Mama"!
It cracks me up that she remembered cake! The skating rink is a great place to skate AND eat!!
