Shelly was out of town for the weekend on a very rare and well deserved time away from us. But this meant I was forced (FORCED) to care for our children.
Julie was invited to a b-day party at a nearby roller rink on Sat. The girls have never roller skated. And, it's been almost 30 years for me since I last put roller skates on my feet. Needless to say this was hilarious (not). Actually it was cute and fun. The girls did as well as can be expected for their first times on skates. I was trying as hard as hell to remember how I learned to skate and couldn't. So, I basically sequestered them to a little practice area. I felt bad for Julie as she couldn't be out skating (or trying to) with her friends/classmates. However, the girls still said they had a good time, regardless. I tried not to freak out too much whenever either took a spill. Julie came home with some nice looking bruises too. We'll have to try and get back so the girls can try skating some more.
Yesterday was pumpkin carving time. I apparently let them pick designs that may have been a bit more difficult considering neither has done the actual carving before but they managed to do a pretty good job.
It's going to be a chilly night for them tonight but at least it's not snowing like it did 20 years ago.
