Adoptive Families event - Roller skating

Bath Art!

Fun at the Zoo

Ice Show Videos

Sarah, as expected, stole the show as she lead 20 three to five year olds out on the ice for the local Learn to Skate ice show to the music of "Carolina in the Morning".

Sarah is the smallest and first in line. When they reach the end of the blue line, they are supposed to do a little back and forth shuffle, then an up & down bounce movement. As you can see, Sarah seems to be the only one doing it. The rest of them join the routine for the "in the morning" movement. The girls turning in circles are one blue line ahead of the routine. They are supposed to do "swizzles" straddling the red line, then do the circles at the end of the second blue line. Dad lost sight of Sarah as she & her partner headed back to the center circle, but he catches up!

Sarah loved watching all the performers come out for the finale. It is so fun because as each performer does a little final flourish, Sarah looks like she is trying to figure out how to make her feet do each thing. She really got into the screaming and hooting for each performer.

This is the Carolina girls coming out for the finale (1:23 minutes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgCdbE59Yrw

This one is Sarah & friends getting into cheering for the rest of the skaters (6:26 minutes) They were screaming along with the rest of the crowd. Sarah is also mimicking some of the skating moves and making her 10 year old companion very nervous!
