It's so amazing to see how much the girls have grown over the years. Here's Bailey her first year, back in 2003. She is wearing a "retro" uniform - it was mine when I was in first grade.
Last year was a rough patch with our troop. The girls had hit their teenage years. I hate to admit this, but for a while there I thought that last year might be the last year of our troop - or at least the last year that I could handle.
Yesterday's ice skating trip was the first activity we did this year. It was going to be the activity to set the tone for the rest of the year.
Luckily, we had a quick lesson before we had free skate.
This kid was a natural at ice skating! Look at her jump!
I however, was not. Look Ma! No hands!
Of course, Melissa and I had to ride as well. We were totally ok with being embarrassed.
