CBH Ice Skating Classic 2011

Every year the kids' school puts on an "Ice Skating Classic" after grades 1-5 go through 1 week of ice skating practice in gym class. Even though both boys know how to skate without using chairs, they still insist on using them... Jeffrey explained that it helped him go faster. :)

Mickey always opts not to participate in the racing segment. He says he he doesn't like racing.
Probably meaning the competition part...
Jeffrey with his best buddy Shia.
I guess Jeffrey's theory about the chair worked because he won 2nd place in his race!
He got 4th last year so he was sooo happy! He got a red ribbon too- his favorite color.
At the end the boys found a giat snow mound that had a deep tunnel in it and played there for a long time. If you didn't know where to look it was virtually impossible to find it in the field of endless deep snow.
It was a fun afternoon- and thankfully it was 36 degrees that day(or more!). We were in the middle of a heat wave here in Fargo and I was sooo grateful since I HATE being cold.
Next year all 3 of them will be able to participate together! But just that one time because after that Mickey will be off to middle school. (gasp) I don't want to talk about that though.
