Ice Skating

When my youngest son sets his mind to doing something, he will not stop until he figures out a way to get it done. Recently he went on a field trip with the Middle School to an ice skating rink in Arkansas. He loved it and has been bugging us for the last month to take him back. The ice skating rink is over 2 hours away, so it really hasn't been at the top of our list of things to do. Nick got on the Internet and searched ice skating rinks and came across a site on how to make one. Yesterday Nick and his dad did just that. It was only about 10 degrees but Nick did not stop until his Ice Skating Rink was finished.
First they had to get their supplies.
Next they built a frame about 16'x 16'

Next comes the plastic.

Then the water.

And now we wait for it to freeze.

Oh no Wendy! I had not heard they will be ending the magazine. That really breaks my heart, I've always looked forward to it. I'm really surprised. :(

I forgot to say, this is such a great idea! I'm sure you will be the only ones on the block with your own skating rink. How fun!
