That's how we ROLL...

 Over the weekend, the Foster Parents Association hosted a fundraiser at the skating rink near our home. 
 Because of major county budget cuts, the association is always looking for ways to make up for some of our lost funding. 
 We use the money for many things, but it ALL goes back to the kids in care! 
The association has a fun fall festival planned for the kids in care in October, and the Christmas party details are already underway too!
It's gonna be fun and we can't wait!!!!
The kids had a blast skating!
 I was SHOCKED at how well the babies did! 
They scooted around the floor like little pro's!
 Once again I was reminded that they are not really "babies" anymore, but big kids;(
 My sweet sisters were gracious enough to come along too, and offered a helping hand wherever needed!
 We had a SUPER fun time...
and enjoyed hanging out with other foster families.

Looks fun. I'll have to show this post to my 8 year old Kade. I've been saying I want to take them skating but he doesn't think he could do it. If the 'babies' can he. :) Love your comfy pants by the cute!

Looks like your roller skating adventure went a lot better than ours. It took almost 45 minutes to convince my kids (and the others with them), that we were there to skate, not eat! Maybe next time, I should get a pair of skates too. And what a great fundraiser to help the kids in foster care.

Ha...I can just hear you saying "this is how we roll"! :-) I love the pic of Sophie skating...I'm sure she wanted to try it ALL BY HERSELF! That pic captures it all! How fun! Glad you guys had a good time!

Love this! We have actually never taken the kids roller skating, but I think they would love it! Looks like so much fun & the pics of Ri & Soph are adorable! I am impressed!
