New Snow & Saturday night dinner
This morning Patrick and I took the kids to the golf course to go cross country skiing. This was the first time this winter we've taken them and the trip went well. Stuey walked along on his skis for about 35 minutes and Nora actually started to get the hang of skiing. Patrick and I were amazed by the improved confidence Nora had in the one year time since she last skiied. It was so much easier today than ever before. And there were no tears from Nora and Stuey! Yeah! A successful family ski trip by all measures. Stuey kept saying he wanted to "go to mountain"...Will he be a downhill adrenaline junkie? I had to explain to him that he has to get first skiing on flat area before he goes downhill.
Last night Jeremy and Karen came over for dinner-Patrick made quesadillas filled with deer burger and onions/peppers. It snowed outside and the kids served us spoonfuls of snow. They were on a mission to keep us full with snow.
After dinner Jeremy read a few books to the kids and taught Nora a song from one of the books. It was a 4 line song and Nora really enjoyed memorizing it and singing it to us. It was a fun time with Jeremy and Karen-they are moving to Portland at the end of the month. We will be sad.
