Ice Skating & Happy New Year

Yesterday my kids eventually got to go ice skating for the first time in their lives, they have been asking me to take them for sometime now but because it has been many years since I did ice skating myself and not having the desire to do it again, we never got to go there that is until a friend of mine offered to take them while I just sit outside and watch.
They got very excited putting their skating shoes on but as soon as they entered the rink, Amir got a bit scared and wanted to come out, I encouraged him and in he went, I told them that they will fall many times but that almost everyone will have a fall.

Here is Aida having a great fall, one of many to come. After a while they both started to manage to skate a bit, although Amir got the hang of it quicker than Aida, I am assuming it is because he is a lot shorter :o)

They both enjoyed it so much and didn't stop talking about it for a long time, they were really looking forward to it and it actually exceeded their expectations, they loved it even though they both went home with a sore bottom :o)


Today is the last day of the year, a year that has been unkind to some of us and good to the rest, I just want to wish everyone every where a very Happy 2008 and I hope inshaAllah that it is a good year for all of us :o)
I would Like to thank Brave Heart for the Brave Heart Award 2007 and the excellent post with the result in which he gave me the award, I am overwhelmed and very pleased to get it, to me all Libyan bloggers are winners, we are all doing something that can only be described as good and brave.

Hello Anglo-Libyan..Nice to know kids had a great time..My only encounter with Ice was in that huge structure in Dubai(I think it is the world largest Fridge:) )..It was this summer,it was eciting forme-coming from a 90% desert country-to play in ice and snow,even in my age..
Happy new year for you and your family....

Happy New Year

It is great you took the kids to Ice skating. Let them have few group and private lessons, in 6 to 9 months they will be very good at it. It is a lifetime skill, it is worth every penny spend. Ice skating and Skiing are the best medicine for anti winter depression. With ice skating skills then rollerblade comes natural to them. Then you can rollerblade with your kids in spring and summer.

We have Saturday Disco Night at a Ice Skating Ring in a mall, it is great for kids, family and Love Birds :-) Best reward for kids after ice skating is a Hot Chocolate.

Your kids will enjoy the vidoeclip

thank you Farasha.

salam loza and thanks for the comment.
I do respect your father's opinion and have no problem with that although I do know that the prophet (SAAWS) used to visit and great his Christian & Jewish neighbours and I do not believe its a big deal, my English friends always wish me and my family a happy Eid and give my kids gifts, I can not say to them that it is wrong to do that, we live in a multi faith, multi culture society and we need to have a mark and a place, otherwise we will just end up living isolated in ghettos.
thank you again dear loza.

loza said...

God bless u anglo ..

Hey Dear Anglo,

I have came across your Blogger while i was trying to search for " Benghazi Ice Skating " and by chance actually i found a website which has a link for an Ice Skating Arena in Benghazi it was oppened on the 20th of August 2008... I think that's a good news for the kids to know that even when they come back to vist they will have a Ice Skating in Benghazi.

Here is the Link if everybody wanna see --->
