As much as I complain about our nearest town and their pushy religious views, they recently did something I love.* This fall they tore down some buildings on the main street and instead of leaving an unsightly pile of rubble and dirt, they flattened it all out and put in an outdoor ice skating rink.
*With the exception of the church music one of the local businesses is blasting from across the street.
We all had to buy new skates, but skating is free, so all this week we've been going at least once a day, sometimes twice.
Poor Mae and Binny's knees are black and blue from falling, but they are really starting to get the hang of it.
