For her birthday, Alyssa wanted to go ice skating and then to Chili's for appetizers and chips and salsa. We decided to have a meeting spot rather then me go around and pick everyone up so while we were at the middle school parking lot, the girls started doing some of the dances from there dance class. Oh I wish I would have thought to record it. They were being more funny then serious and it was hilarious! Once everyone arrived we loaded cards and went to the ice skating rink where most of the girls froze to death! It IS ice skating. You'd think they would bring jackets but I guess that is not "cool". I actually took my winter coat and gloves and was the only one not chattering! They had tons of fun. Alyssa took a couple of spills but her friend (the one in the orange top) fell really hard and her bottom hurt the rest of the night. Poor girl!
There was only one of the boys Alyssa invited that could come. He had a GREAT time!!! The odds were in his favor, that is for sure.
I had a hard time getting good skating photos. They were mostly blurry but here is a fun one that turned out OK. It amazes me how good Alyssa is at just about everything she does. She has only been skating 2 times but can pull her friends along just fine! 15 is a big birthday......she takes the written driving test in a few weeks and then will have her driving permit. Can you believe that? I know I should be worried.....that seem to be protocol......be worried that your teenager is driving but I am actually very excited. Now she take herself around to basketball. The problem is now getting a car in the next year. UGH!
