Warning: Shameless bragging ahead. I guess I am officially a “skate mom”. Alex had her first exhibition at the opening of an outdoor ice rink last night in Boulder, CO. She is skating with a pre-lim. synchronized skate team of 7 girls ranging in age of 8 to 11 years old. They skated to a very shortened version of their “Toy Story” routine. The girls were awesome! They only worked on this portion of the routine during 2 practices but picked it up very quickly. I think I was more nervous than she was. But then again, she has always been that way…no stage fright. She may be reserved in personality (she has a very hard time talking to people she doesn’t know) but she would dance her heart out on stage in front of an auditorium full of people when she was 3 and 4 years old. It’s mind-boggling really. And I am now officially a very proud skate mom.
