Lauren went to a classmate's birthday party at the Skating Rink today. I didn't even know there was a skating rink in our area. I should have though because the ATL is known for its skating rinks.
(statement solely based on the 5 out of 10 stars movie, ATL.)
Needless to say this was Lauren's first time on 4 wheels. She did greater than great! At first she held my hand at all times. Then she started skating by herself but wanted me within arms reach.
A little later she was comfortable with more distance.
Towards the end of the party she told me I could go sit with the grown-ups.
There's my girl clear across the rink skating with the birthday boy. A very proud Momma took this picture.
Someone else may be noticing how special Lauren is.
Her teacher sent this parent evaluation home last week.
It's a preliminary screening for the REACH program (formerly known as TAG.)
We'll see where this goes but whatever comes of it Lauren has already REACHed beyond my wildest dreams for a daughter.
