Ice Skating

Today was the much anticipated and much dreaded field trip... Ice Skating.

The students have looked forward to this for quite awhile. Their teacher on the other hand, has not. I was imagining bloody messes. (Due to previous experience.) However, there was no blood and it was a lot of fun.

This was only my second time ice skating and first time to not be clinging to the walls. Thankfully my students were impressed. The secret is to grab a kid who is clinging to the wall and skate on the outside of her... you look like you know what you are doing. ;)

The trip was a good incentive (aka-threat) for students to keep their behavior in check. The middle school attitude is slowly creeping in. It helps having days like today. Fun to be had by all!

Thanks Mr.Daniel for chaperoning and tying lots of skates!
