So they take the kids skating.

Once every three weeks they walk over to the arena and all these kids whip around on the ice have way too much fun. They ask for any parents who are brave enough to come along and help supervise. Last time I fell once and Ben fell lots. He clung to the boards and was very disappointed that he was not an expect skater after an hour. This week he fell much less and went around holding onto a pylon. All in all he's making great progress!

Back in my day this wasn't a milestone we celebrated.
It was almost too much cute. The best part was when each of the children said what the wanted to be when they grow up. Here are my top three:
"When I grow up I want to be a rock star!"
"When I grow up I want to be a cashier!"
"When I grow up I want to be a paleontologist!" (sp? My son wants to be it and I can't even spell it lol)
Also, the parents and their mad picture taking rush really put me in mind of the paparazzi Especially when the principal had to come out and tell us all to sit down and we could take pictures at the end.....

Quote of the day April 7th 2011

Benji came to my room this morning with his huge plush shark and I grabbed the shark and Ben said:
"Mumma, that's not a cuddle-pie, that's a shark!"

"Don't I look scary Mummy?"

"No darling you look adorable."
"But I have fierce dinosaur feet and a scary Halloween costume on my head....Grrrrrrrrr!"
"Nope. Still adorable."
