After 2 years and 4 months, Miss A, My lovely ice skating girl, has finally passed all eight levels of Skate UK! My goodness I am so so proud of her. She has spent hundreds of hours on the ice to achieve this. On Sunday morning, she completed the final element of level 8, her step sequence.
I can’t get over it.
Miss A has always loved ice skating but it hasn’t come naturally. However she has worked so hard and has achieved so much. The dedication and determination she has at the moment is amazing. She struggled at first but she soon breezed through the last few levels. Amazing girl!
I miss out on so much in terms of her ice skating as I can’t be there to see it as I don’t drive. This means that my other half takes her. But it’s OK, I get to see her dance more than what he does, plus he is the skater. I gave up ice skating a while ago. It just wasn’t for me.
I am looking forward to finding out what Miss A learns next, this isn’t the end of her ice skating journey, far from it.
I have had a long break from the blog so I haven’t updated you all about skating at all. Miss A took part in her first gala in March, she was fantastic, so was the rest of the children! She is preparing for the next one now. Can’t wait to see it.
I would like to thank all of Miss A’s coaches, they are amazing! And I would like to thank my other half. If it wasn’t for him starting skating, Miss A wouldn’t either. He has got up most Sundays at 6:30am to take Miss A to her lessons at Blackpool Ice Arena. I am so thankful, both of them amazing. Miss A has hardly moaned about getting up early and she now has a bit of a late night on Thursdays too. She takes it all in her stride!
I am one happy and proud Mummy!
