Will's birthday

We celebrated Will's birthday at South Suburban Ice Arena on Sunday with a great party. Will invited his buddies to come skating for a few hours. We supplied the pizza, pop and cake. One of my students, Alec, even showed up to assist with teaching the kids to skate.  Most of the kids had never skated before so needless to say I was quite worried about how this was all going to turn out since I would be on the ice with all of them. Luckily, the kids are quick learners. Most of them loved it by the end of the skating session.

For those of you who don't know, Will decided that instead of presents, he would collect money to donate  in honor of his friend Sam Leclaire.  Kristin and Jason, Sam's parents, made Will a shirt to commemorate the occasion. We are so proud of Will!

The best part was at the end of the event, the "party host" felt as though he had let Will down and not done a good job. So, he offered Will a ride on the Zamboni while he cleaned the ice.  What a treat!
