vacation time!

summer vacation returning august 28

Even though this whole summer has been a vacation, it looks like it’s time for a vacation from the vacation! I’m visiting all sorts of places in the next few weeks, and I’m planning to take lots of pictures and learn many new things.

See you in August!

Today, with the exception of the first photo, we are featuring a guest photographer: my brother Ben! Didn’t he do a good job?

Today was a more challenging day. We were up early and out the door by 9:15, and decided to start by going down a blue square trail on the back side of the mountain. I think I’m a timid skiier… I would be content to go down the green trails all day, especially when I’m still working on technique (looking at ben’s pictures, i realized that i crouch way more than necessary). The more difficult trail, especially as the first one of the day, was a scary one for me.

I went down two more trails today, including another blue square. But for today, I was content with my three runs and came back to the little room.

The boys did another run before lunch, then went back out for three more afterward. I’m planning on getting as many runs in as I can tomorrow, our last day.
