Next year's rink

Quick tally of the last couple of days. Wednesday: Two kids, 3 1/2 hours. Four kids, 2 hours. One kid, 1 hour. Thursday: four kids, 2 1/2 hours. That's 26 kid-hours of enjoyment in the past two days alone. Kind of puts my 12 to 15 hours of preparatory work in perspective.

Next year I will look back on these last few rink posts and I will remember why I do it.

But first I'll buy a new liner, one without holes all over the place. The last week and a half's skating has made it clear that the kids will get enough enjoyment, exercise and fresh air to justify the expense several times over.

  1. We live on a lake, sometimes the ice isn't good for skating though, but this year it's been awesome, smooth as the indoor rinks! My husband has the kids out for hours and Mom (me) LOL gets alone time.
