Let's Go Skating!

Now that the weather is chillier, we have to dress up in our warmer clothes! Clara Anne loves her new Strawberry Shortcake coat that we found at a local market. Chloe wasn't so excited about the picture taking, but loves her purple coat too, even though it was Clara Anne's last year! The girls got all ready to go out on a date with Daddy; Clara Anne took her rollerblades and Chloe had her little bike in tow. Fun times!

Within our apartment complex there are several open areas with a city square sort of feel. Other kids were also out with their skateboards and bikes!
Clara Anne is doing great with skating! She is gaining confidence and has fun with it. She still lands on her bottom occasionally but she just gets right back up again. I have such fond memories of roller skating with my friend Heidi on our smooth driveway when we were growing up; I'm glad for Clara Anne that she has learned this new skill. Way to go, Clara Anne!

Happy Thanksgiving! I was wondering if you could do a blog post on what a typical day looks like for you living in another country. I think it would be really interesting. I loved the post on learning to eat. Your girls are adorable. Blessings, Kristie
