It's freezing!! I love it!! My backyard rink!!
I said it last year and I'll say it again.......... I just love my backyard rink..
I taught all of my children (4) how to skate on my backyard rink. Besides that, the life-lessons that they have learned extend beyond what words could express.
I never thought that I would be so passionate about a rink, yet, I feel that it is a display of my love/dedication to my children that I needed to share it.
Is there something in your life that is a symbol of your dedication to youir kids?
Sounds like fun. Can't you post a pic of you're rink?
(why does my question sound wrong?)
Your question does not sound "wrong" to me. I will try to post a pic of it.
I just bought a cheap digital camera. I can't promise the quality, but I WILL post some pics of it. Any help/advice on how to do that would be appreciated.

Does the balance on my Visa statement or the overdraft on my chequing account count?
OK, get the pic onto you're PC, then go here:
Then just press the upload button on that url, then post the url here
Hope this helps
k..... thanks Brummie.
When it gets light, I will do so and hopefully you can see the reason for my passion.
I am also interested in hearing other people's thoughts on things that they do (similar to my making a rink) that they consider to be "for the kids". I always need new ideas.

BTW, Brummie, do you get to go skating in England? IMO, one of the "perks" of living in Canada. Sorry, bikerchic for using profanity. No offense intended.

Yes, it was a big JW thing when i was younger in the borg, we went to indoor skating arenas and met so many JWs that way. Then we had a convention talk which discouraged it, not because skating was wrong but because a lot of younger people were going there without having any adults around, so it died down a lot.
Where I live now in Somerset I seldom see ice pools outside but back in Birmigham all pools and canals used to ice up and many people skated on them, so we did a lot of that sort of stuff

I replied to your PM. Like I said in a thread I usually don't object in fact prefer *'s be used but in the title it's a different story for me altogether.
BTW it's freezing rain here, I have icicles hanging off my car! Burrrrrr!!!!! I can't wait until tomorrow when it's supposed to warm up to the high 30's. I wanna go outside but not slip-n-slide!
I just got back from the rink. My son had two goals as we beat a rival HS 2-0.
Enjoy your rink.
Your son got both goals? Congrats!!! Aside from our own bragging rights of being their mother/father isn't it great to just see their joy?
My son's hilight of the year so far was that they ALL got the MVP award when they won 1-0. It's beautiful to see them respecting each other in such a positive way.
