Day 19 Skating for Paws

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life

Skating for Paws!
Yesterday our local girl scouts held a roller skating event.  Now, I can't remember when was the last time I skated.  My fear of a broken bone holding me back from getting the skates on...I reflected on how my disposition changed over the course of two hours.

Oh, it looked so dangerous
So many skaters falling
on the doopah
on the knees 
So many skaters falling

Out come the skate mates!
Oh, so many skaters need them
only 8
only 2 times around
Oh, so many skaters need them

Skaters building confidence
Not so many skaters falling
moving a little faster
doing the chicken dance
Not so many skaters falling

Oh, it looked so exciting
So many skaters flying by
whizzing around the rink
maybe I'll try
So many skaters flying by

Putting on skates
such a short time left
made it around without falling
holding hands with my girl
such a short time left

The skating party ends
raffle tickets drawn
gift baskets donated for a cause
calling all the winners, no luck
Skating party ends.

The skating party for a cause ended up raising $500 for the Paws and Prayers Animal Shelter.  Such cute dogs looking for homes.  I'm glad we could help with their need.
