As an attempt to get the children out and about more, we signed them up for ice skating lessons. The older two, not little Emily. She'll just have to hang out with mom while the others have fun. Lessons don't really cost a whole lot more than admission and skate rental, and they get to skate free in the public session the day of their lesson. The lessons start in January. They are excited, and so am I. I'm glad that even though they are at different age levels the lessons are back to back, so I only have to make one trip to the skating rink.
