Boys on the Blue


The ice on the lake is now thick enough to make a rink. This is the first time in three years that we will be able to skate on the lake. Our next door neighbor works with us to set up a rink for our children. The boys were out today shoveling off the snow to expose the ice.


Is that going to be big enough?


There is outdoor lighting so they can skate at night and music. It's a lot of fun. The best nights are when our neighbors, old and young alike, hit the ice and skate together.

We have done that in the years past as well. Although I will admit.....I get nervous when the kids go out ont he ice. It is a fun time though!

Where are you living? It looks like fun, but I hate the cold! I guess if you have that kind of cold, you are making the best of it! My kids would love to skate on a lake!

We live in Michigan in the US and it is mighty cold here right now.
My children would love to see Germany.
They check every day to see if people from other countries have come to see our blog. They think that is so cool.

This is a world I have never known. Wow, I'd love to be there. I'm in Texas, and we get excited to see frost on the grass in the mornings.
