>Blake got out there on the ice this morning bright and early. He was a little slow at first but by the time the hour was up he was gaining speed. He really enjoys skating and being out there with the other kids. I am glad he isn’t afraid. His first practice is on October 25th. I will be interested to see how it goes with drills and skating with sticks and a puck..although that will probably be more like practice #2 or 3.
I also took the boys to the scarecrow festival at Emma Krumbee’s in Belle Plaine along with Grandma Sue. They liked looking at all the scarecrows but really enjoyed the train ride and pony rides. Then we drove down the road a ways to the apple stand. They had lots of different apples to try and buy. I never knew there were so many different kinds of apples. All taste a little different too. The boys enjoyed it. On the way home we stopped and bought pumpkins. It was a fun-filled day that wore them out. And me for that matter!
Tomorrow we are going to try and head down to visit our friend Amy who is now out of ICU but still in Rochester St Mary’s Hospital. Things sound like they are getting better but she will continue to be there. We are dropping the boys off at Grandpa Bruce’s house to play for the afternoon. Should be fun for them!
I will post some pictures soon from the trip to Emma Krumbee’s today!
