"Are you having adult skate soon?"
She appeared a few hours later, after she had finished her chores for the day. The true definition of adult skate: fun after you get your work done! The shadows were getting longer but there was still a bit of daylight left.
The older boys were already off to various activities and so that left Terzo, who was happy to strap on his skates and join her. I must confess that I am turning into more and more of a wimp where these "potential for harm" activities are concerned. I used to participate with abandon, but my sense of adventure has abandoned me.
Terzo talked her into playing ice hockey with him, which she graciously agreed to. I was out taking pictures until Dusty became too much of a nuisance. He would stand behind me and edge up, then take off in pursuit of the puck as soon as he determined that I was keeping a closer eye on the lens than on him. I took him inside and readied hot chocolate while my husband lit a fire.
The boys cross country team may be joining us in a day or two. I'd better lay in more hot chocolate.
