I'm still hopeful that we'll get in one more skiing day. We went last week and had a fantastic time! We joined up with two other families and found several other friends out on the slopes. Soccer Boy decided to spend some of his birthday money to rent a snow board and he spent the whole afternoon perfecting his snow boarding technique. I'm so proud of him for getting up and trying again each time he fell down - and he fell down a lot! I love those moments where you're able to see your kid's rising maturity levels in action.
|How did these two get to be so big? It seems like only yesterday when we were picking them up from their preschool classroom. They've grown into such great kids.|
Skiing is one of those activities that just doesn't get boring. I think that we could ski all year if the slopes stayed open. I know that lots of people are ready for spring now that we've had one big snow. The kids and I are the opposite. This morning Soccer Boy was asking when we're heading to PA again. He wanted to know if there would still be snow there. I found myself wishing that I had taken Friday off so we could have spent one more day skiing on real snow. It was such a treat yesterday to be on real powder instead of our normal hard icy machine made snow.
|Joy at the top of the mountain! A perfect day.|
