It seems to happen every year… the holidays end and I think it’s rest time. Our days couldn’t possibly get busier! Then school starts up, and I soon realize that the rest is still months away! Because life. (Nice sentence, I know!)
We were going into our first weekend after being back in school, and the kids were already asking to see friends. When I called one of Malachi’s buddies, it turned out he was skiing… so Malachi wanted to go as well. Long story short, within minutes, we were dressed, snacks packed, and headed up to Big Mountain for my first time skiing in 23 or 24 years! And, it was night skiing, none-the-less!
I soon learned that skiing is like riding a bike; you don’t really forget… even after almost a quarter century! (How am I that old?) It was a warm night, and there had been a ton of fresh snow falling over the past 3 days. It was an ideal time to get back on the slopes. Both Daniel and I caught the ski bug!
Allison had skied once before many years ago. And, this was Malachi’s first time. Both did great and are looking forward to more time on the slopes.
Saturday brought another unexpected surprise — Daniel found free chicks from a neighbor on Nextdoor and couldn’t resist. I am pretty sure we have way too many projects to be taking on chicks right now, but what do I know!?!?!?
Sunday came, and still no rest… it was time to take Sierra to her first competitive gymnastics meet a few hours south of here. We stopped at our favorite meat store for some buffalo snacks!
Sierra placed 10th in her age group and her team got 1st all-around. It was a fun experience!
Aaaaannnndd, this weekend has another gymnastics meet, along with semester finals to be graded, friends coming for dinner, teaching Sunday school, and all the things… No rest for now. I wouldn’t have it any other way. (Don’t quote me on that!)
