2-18-16 First thing in the morning, she continues whining about her ice skating performance. I emailed her coach and we attempted to determine what her fear was. My perfectionist daughter is afraid she won't do well. She proceeded to have a meltdown after school as the whining continued. I asked her if she wanted to stop ice skating, she said, "no!" Continued to message her coach and her coach will talk to her tomorrow at her lesson.

Daddy took her to her Free Skate 1 class. Went to Disney on Ice Frozen in the evening. Bought pre-sale tickets last year not realizing we would be moving 15 minutes away from one of the arenas where the show was. We ended up driving 1 hour, 20 minutes through horrible traffic to the other arena. Spent $12 on cotton candy and saw hundreds of little Elsa's! She enjoyed it, though, so it was worth it.
Entered her drawing in the Art Reflections contest at school. The theme is "Let Your Imagination Fly"...her drawing reflects how she imagines to be an Olympic Gold Medalist in figure skating one day. She also entered a video of her performance to "Beauty in the Beast" in the dance category.
9-23-15 On and off ice training (Bridge class) right after school. She made it through on ice and then started to meltdown like last week for office ice, so I went into the room with her and she made it through class. Think at the end of this session, we will stop Bridge class and add another lesson with Coach Meegan.
9-9-15 After school, she started the next session of Bridge Class (on and off ice training class). She was complaining the entire way there that she didn't like Bridge Class, blah, blah, blah. After class, she was excited to tell me about it and said she had fun! Guess she does like it!
8-17-15 Morning ice skating with Coach Meegan today instead of Friday since we will be out of town. When we were leaving, she was almost crying saying she didn't want to go to Grandma's because she's going to miss her Saturday Basic Skills class and thought she would miss testing to move up to the next level. Called the rink and they tested last Saturday and give out the certificates this Saturday. She tested up to Basic 8.
She had an off day at the Summer Sizzle ice competition and fell during her Basic 5 program, so she got 3rd place. She was okay with it. I surprised her with a cat Stuffie after the competition. This was the last "Beauty and the Beast" performance, her music will change at the next one.
