Sunday Skating

Amara didn’t spend the night with us this weekend. Twursula was very happy. She had Amara’s room all to herself, just the way she likes it. I found her

Twursula thinks the Princess Chair is hers

lounging in Amara’s Princess chair. I also found her sleeping in a basket of laundry that somehow never got put away this weekend. It’s been a long time since I’ve left laundry in Amara’s room. As she has gotten older I have gotten better about not turning her room into Laundry Land.

Even though Amara wasn’t spending the night I had made a plan to take her skating on Sunday afternoon. It is always lots of fun when the 2 of us go out to do something together and we had so much fun at the birthday skating party. We had made a skating play date with one of her friends and her Mom. They had been at the skating party, too and they wanted an excuse to go back. Neither of the girls are very good skaters but Sunday they really made some great improvements. Amara was getting much more confident about trying it on her own. This time the girls took their own skates and I think it helped.

Amara still spent most of her time either holding my hand (but not nearly as tight) or she held on to the wall. But there were lots of moments when she would let go of both and bravely do it on her own. The cutest part was when they would play a popular song that the girls knew and liked. They couldn’t exactly dance but they could wave their arms and sing — and they did. 2 adorable seven year olds, dancing and singing on skates. It was wonderful. All 4 of us had a blast and we’re definitely going back again soon.

Great friends, great exercise, great fun and great memories.

      Twursula and Amara are both Princesses that’s for sure. But Amara does share a lot better than Twurs does!

    One of my granddaughters went skating last weekend, too, but not with me or with a girlfriend–with a BOY! So enjoy your seven-year-old. Before long she’ll be a teenager!

      I told her Mom about your comment and I thought she was going to have a heart attack right there on the spot! Then there is Grampy, I’m not sure he is going to survive Amara being a teenager either.

    It sounds like it was a fun afternoon for all four of you! It won’t be long and both the girls will be skating like they’ve done it forever!

      Oh! Twursula does need a tiara doesn’t she! I’d love to get her one of those sequin collars but they don’t make them in breakaway collars!

      I must admit that the skating rink is my comfort zone from my own childhood and it does make me very proud when Amara tells her friends that Grandma Kc is a very good skater! Nice to have your granddaughter look up to you!

    Going skating with grandkids is the best way ever to get exercise!
    And I love seeing what Twursula looks like. Do I detect something of an attitude? As in, “Hey, you! With the camera! What are you looking at? Can’t a girl take a nap on (what she thinks is) her own Princess chair in private any more?”

    Twursula looks content in Amara’s room. I really miss having a cat. I know what you mean about letting the space turn into Laundry Land. Unfortunately, Laundry Land at my house is usually on the sofa.

    That princess chair is great! Since I last read this post, my youngest grandson (Mac) got a chair very similar to that … but it’s a character from Monsters, Inc. Another difference between grandsons and granddaughters. 😀

    Lately it’s been on my mind that I might never rollerskate again, not for physical reasons but because I just have no one to rollerskate with. I hope I’m wrong and that I one day can rollerskate with grandkids. Silly thing to worry about, isn’t it? (I feel the same about ice skating and sledding.) Meh …

    Thank you for sharing this sweet post in the GRAND Social. I always love to look back at the younger Princess Amara!
