Winter Time Fun

Today we got to spend some time together as a family. Yippee! We went to the ice skating rink. Enoch and I took turns sitting out with Patricia and one or two of the other cuties.

Tabitha was crying the first round, not wanting to try it, afraid of falling, etc. But, as you can see from this picture, her attitude changed by the end:

Enoch didn't complain at all even though he spent most of the time on the bench holding Patty cakes. Next time we'd really like to make a point for the two of us to get on the rink together.
Seth had a hard time standing up. He liked it when I held him from behind and skated. It was fun to glide:

We were happy to have Carol and Lily join us. It was Lily's first time, but she did great. By the end she was able to skate by herself.
Patricia was tired out from watching all the action. It's a hard job, ya know?

Verse for thought: "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7

You didn't mention that you were skating like an Olympic champ once the kids and I were taking off our skates. :) I love you!
