Windy and cold… Day 772 26DEC10

Our weather changed dramatically late last night with torrential rain and howling winds followed by a significant drop in the temperature. We went from t-shirts yesterday to hats and mittens today. So far this winter has been pretty unpredictable and hard to adjust to. The boys wanted to go out and practice skating even though it was cold and windy so we got them bundled up and headed out. Our neighbor across the street had an old pair of skates in his garage which he lent to me so I could skate with the boys. We all had a lot of fun and they are both getting their feet under them more and more. I figure it won't be very long before they are skating circles around the old man. Joshua and Jarrod are really excited about being able to play a little roller hockey once their balance gets a little better. When darkness fell Joshua finally, although reluctantly, took his skates off and put on his lucky jersey to get ready for the Bolts game. They did great and won it in overtime which made Joshua very happy.

Tomorrow is clinic day for a quick finger stick and CBC, Joshua has had great counts for a while now so we are expecting more of the same. I am sure that as soon as we get back the boys will be back out skating :)

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

One good thing about having to bundle up to go outside - if you fall you've got padding!

Glad to hear you both are getting steadier on the skates.

Hope clinic is a breeze and your counts are where they need to be.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
