When winter started I was aprehensive about working a part-time job as a ski instructor, but have come to love spending my time there. Yes, it's made life a little bit crazier at home. But, mostly it's given me a chance to spend some time doing something I love while getting paid to do so. With only one more weekend to go, I can say that I'll be back next season without a doubt.
We started the weekend by having a great group of girls spend the night to celebrate our oldest's birthday. I love all of these girls like they're my own. They spent a large portion of their evening paiting nails and singing Taylor Swift songs together. It seems like just yesterday they were playing games of pretend. There's still a lot of goofy in them though... I hope they hang on to that as they grow up.
|Added bonus to them getting older - they make the birthday cake themselves!|
We've been blessed with several late winter snow storms, and the last one hit right before the boy's early birthday party. It wound up being a warm, sunny day perfect for playing outside for several hours. Then the boys were happy to move inside for cake and games (Minecraft themed and mostly kid created).
