cheap skate, pp3 take 2 and icy roads

Yesterday I got a great opportunity to spend time with friend Julie, sister in law Ibby, Abby, Libby, Katie, Osten, Joe, Isaiah, Henry and Dehlia (got to see Bruce and Julie briefly) at Cheap Skate in Coon Rapids. I had heard tales of Brad's childhood at Cheap Skate. How he would go there, buy licorice whips and hang out with friends. They no longer serve licorice whips, but they do have great skating/blading and scootering opportunities. We skated from 1pm until 4:45...I started with a skate trainer because it had been a few years since I'd been skating, but it didn't take long to skate around unassisted. We had a blast and I loved seeing Osten use a scooter and Katie roller blade.

After skating, I took Henry with us and we made a return to Barnes and Noble and then drove to Hudson so Osten could see Pitch Perfect 3 and Henry and Katie could see the Greatest Showman. All the kids looked pretty pooped out after the movie so we headed home and hit the sheets not long after playing a few video games.

Reference to the icy took us roughly 2 hours to get to Cheap Skate...normally would have been a 1 hour trip. We saw several cars in the ditch and one that was on it's roof in the middle of 35E north. Yikes...hopefully no one was critically injured. Be safe everyone!

settling in

The past two days I have spent some time in my new classroom space doing some directing and organizing. I'm really excited to get things...
