We have all been under the weather off an on all holiday season. Nothing big or crazy but, it has slowed us down and kept us pretty low key. Haven't wanted it to turn into more. Yesterday we did a little family adventure to kick off the new year. Ed and I would like to do more this 2015. We often are so content at home on weekends and we shy away from big outings. But when we do it is always a great experience for our family. So we kicked it off with our first ice skating excursion.
We took Charley when he was so little that he just sat on my lap and Ed pushed us around.
Henry was the most tentative. But he got more confident in trying it as the evening went on. Syd loved it and enjoyed pushing around the sled. I even skated! I felt most sure pushing the kids too but I did a few little spins.
I was so proud of Charley. He kept at it and got more and more confident. He fell a lot but he did it with a smile and got back up. We are on the hunt for some used skates now. Kind of regretting not having them on the kid's xmas lists. But hard to know what they are going to like and if we will make time to use them.
Got up and hit the barbell class this morning.
Came home to a dark and quiet house and got this blog post done.
More later! 2015 I want to get something posted on here a couple times a week. Keeping the expectations low and hoping to succeed.
