Spinning Dervish

It's hard to believe that less than a year ago, my 10-year-old daughter could barely skate. She begged and pleaded for lessons, and we finally gave in. We figured she'd learn the basics and go her merry way, but Little Miss Persistence is determined to become a proper figure skater.










Dinner last night: penne bolognese, antipasto salad

Exactly one year ago:

Exactly two years ago:

Excellent turn out:) I loved skating as a kid and was pretty good at it. Must be the Hagen Gene

Good for her! I'm impressed.

Is the skating rink in the mall? Because we have a skating rink in our mall too, and I just thought it was some bizarre Midwest thing.

I am very impressed by how much she's accomplished in a year's time! I'm sure it's very gratifying to find out that it wasn't just a whim.
