Almost to the finish line!

Almost to the finish line!

There is no better test of physical fitness than ice-skating while carrying (from a crouch position) a forty pound sack of potatoes wearing ice skates. I failed; one lap, and I was ready to call it a day. Fortunately, Francis was also finished, and I got to rest.

Though it was only one lap (during which her skates rarely touched the ice), she still talks about it. I have no doubt that she'll try it again, one lap at a time.

We had a similar experience sledding today. Francis was excited about going, but was ready to go home after one trip down the hill.

We feel your pain Matt. I am laughing so hard right now! We decided to have a skating party for Megan this year for her 6th birthday. Andrew spent the afternoon doing the same at the skating rink! I was smart enough not to put skates on so I was "helpless" all I could do was laugh.

Olympic material, I say.
