skating ~

Ice skating ... putting your whole body weight on a little metal blade ... praying your knees and ankles won't give out on you ... because you know if you fail ... the landing will not be pretty!

Practice ... practice ... practice ...

AND the show goes on ...

Yesterday the Price Ice Skating Team put on a program.  That's my Grandlove Bailey on the end left.  

... the camera caught her in an awkward poise on this one skating backwards and making a turn ...

This is Bailey's 3rd year skating.  It just amazes me how much these kids improve each year :)

Their routine had a cute ending ... where they all fall down.  On purpose!

Here's some more shots from the day (from the Price Ice facebook page)

Fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon ... watching these talented kids.

Blake had a big milestone too ... mastering the big slide at daycare.  Thanks Annie for the photos ~

She turns two in a few weeks.  Another year and she'll probably be in skates like her big sister.

Until next time ...
so it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. Congratulations to Bailey on another wonderful skate program. I've seen a few clips here and there floating around facebook. I can't wait to see the whole video next time we are up.
    Also, Blake seems to love the big slide. No fear in that little one! She's gonna be just like her sisters. Missing my girls like crazy! Give them lots of hugs and kisses for me!

    Love ya,
    Your Baby Girl

  2. Funny thing, someone says skates, us southerners think roller skates. I always wanted to try the ice but never did.
    Looks like a great program, I now the kids had a ball and were so proud.
    Sorta like Blake proud of an accomplishment.

    Love from down here. Sweet entry.. Hugs the the Slim man.
