We have been counting down the sleeps until we go skating since last week and most of the kids are excited but some are a bit anxious because they don't know how to skate. We discussed all the things we couldn't do when we started kindergarten and how well we do them now because of all the practicing we do and how its the same with skating. I reminded the kids to bring their helmets and skates (but not hockey sticks) and that there are a few pairs available if they don't have any. I will have the kids put their skates into their backpacks to travel on the bus because they must be in a bag. We should be at the MacArthur Park arena about 10ish if you are coming to join us (yay!). Our ice time starts at 10:15. The children will be encouraged to stay on the ice as long as possible as there is nothing for them to do once they are finished. They may sit on the bench and wait for us (11:15ish) but they may not run around or go on the bleachers. I will not be on skates as it is difficult to help the children with them on but please, if you are a skater, by all means bring your skates. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
