Brrr!

The very best time to have your kids in ice-skating lessons is the middle of the hot, hot Tennessee summer. Although it seems a little eccentric to keep snowboots in the back of your car at all times, they feel a lot better than flipflops inside the rink! Here is Sophie at one of her early lessons, back in July.
After renting skating for a while, Sophie's sweet cousin Zoe (with lots of help from her mom, I'm sure!) sent us her outgrown skates. Sophie was just a bit excited to have her own skates:


What a goofball!

We're still continuing the lessons this Fall. Sophie is getting to be a pretty good little skater, and Will has graduated to hockey lessons.

Good for her! I can skate well enough to go in a slow, big circle. She'll have me beat in no time. Will playing hockey? He rocks.
