Ice skating was fun. There were no four-year-olds because they go into a "tots" class. There was one mother who was in the class with her kids, but other than that I was clearly the oldest one. I felt more like the teacher's assistant, as I finished my two-footed glides across the rink and coached my little classmates across behind me. The most fun part of the class was when we did "Superman Glides" which involve falling forward out of a two-footed glide to slide Superman-style along the ice on one's stomach. The teacher said I did mine very well. ;o) I talked with her afterwards and she said if she quickly shows me all the Basic 1 stuff I could move up to Basic 2, which meets at the same time. My goal for these classes is to learn how to do backward crossovers. That might be Basic 4 or 5. Maybe next year. At least now I know how to fall down and get up. Important life skills, those are.
I wrote this update while monitoring study hall on Wednesday, though I'm just now posting. Things haven't been too busy at school since we're entering a new trimester and all my grading is under control. That won't last long, though. Next week will be our first five-day week in a oddly long time. Two of the shortened weeks in February were planned. One was for Presidents' Day and the other for end-of-trimester and the school musical. The other two shortened weeks were a result of the snow storms. But now it's all back to normal. March is supposed to be a full month of school and spring break is not until April (it's actually more of an Easter break). Well, routine is nice, I guess. I'm off to Trader Joe's now. That's my weekend routine.
