Busy as ever!!

     The past few months have been crazy busy... I am not complaining because I LOVE that my kids are involved in activities, but maybe some sleep would be nice. LOL

My oldest is now 12, yes he has entered that final year before becoming a teenager. He is very involved with the Boy Scouts and has told me that he wants to continue until he is an Eagle Scout. That makes me very proud!

My one and only daughter is still very much involved with her Figure Skating. We have made a few changes with who coaches her, but she is doing wonderful! She has moved up to Basic 5 and now competes in the Basic 4 level. We have already been to 1 of 3 competitions this month. As of right now she is top in points for the series!

My 5 (6 next week) year old is doing well in school and will be starting T-ball next month along with my youngest who is now 4. They are both excited!

So despite being busy I really LOVE that the kids are doing things and having fun.

Just a little update on us.

Figure Skating

     I would have never in a million years thought I would be raising a Figure Skater. But guess what? I am! My 10 year old daughter has been skating for just over a year. She started out in a learn to skate program at our local ice arena at Basic 1 and is now getting ready to level up to Basic 5.
    I honestly can say I had no idea just what was involved in this skating thing. We went from skating one time per week to now skating 3 times per week. We went from no private coach to 2 separate coaches. We went from just skating at our arena to traveling around Michigan going to competitions.
     It has been a crazy ride and I would not change it for anything. My daughter changes when she gets on the ice. She loves it and I am not one to try to stop any of my kids when they show interest in something.
