We went ice skating...it was $3 per person plus $3 to rent skates. I saw some old skates for sale for $15 at a shop in Metamora, IN a few days ago, but they weren't the right size. I'm going to keep looking, there are plenty of thrift stores around! Hannah & Olivia had an awesome time...and we were there from 12:30 to 2pm.
I remember days of my childhood, we had roller skates and ice skates...in the winter, we would skate on a pond or in our backyard (thanks to my dad, who made a rink out of several 2 x 4 and a plastic tarp, which he filled with water...and in Vermont, it will freeze pretty quickly! One year, Grandma gave us girls each a china doll...I remember my little sister, Susanna, wanted to take her doll with her ice skating and dropped her...and her leg broke. She was so sad. But now it's a sweet story.
Historic and overcast with sun. - Of course, every day is historic. Today grandson Brodie ate with a fork for the first time! And lest I forget, it’s the day of the Total Solar Eclipse 2017...
