What a weekend. When I picked Mia up at school on Friday we had still not checked the ice on the pond. It was snowing. Mia told me that "everyone" from school was going skating that very night. I explained to her that the snow might ruin the ice. I should have not told her about that possibility. She pestered me for the next few hours until Nate got home. Then she unleashed her ice control questions on him.
So it was no surprise that Nate was out on the ice right after breakfast Saturday morning. We scraped the snow off all morning long. My Mom came over to help. She loves to skate as much as Mia does.
Nate does not love it as much as the rest of us, but you could not tell.
Some skated around in boots and pajamas.
The cat also found his way down. He's so lonely right now. The other cat went missing. I just hope it is not birthing kittens some where. I'd rather have it be missing for real. I'm a one cat kind of person.
So that afternoon we went skiing with our youth group.
Then Sunday night we went ice skating again.
