Pretty + Frozen
Out our window:
We did not spend much time outside yesterday and overall it was quite cozy and nice. We had breakfast where we are staying (didn’t actually realize it was included — definitely a nice surprise!) and then hunkered down while the temperatures hung out in the -20s.
So, indoor hanging out time it was! I did a little BLPA-related work (Kajabi is the course platform and let’s just say the learning curve has been steep for me, but improving!) and then we all read / watched screens / etc. I read ~2/3 of Carrie Soto is Back (Note: there is some controversy around this book which should be noted. Thus far I prefer her others anyway . . .)
Once the temperatures rose to a balmy -12F or so, we bundled out to pick up our rentals. G&C could not resist diving into the snow (as I repeatedly told them to stop because I was worried about how cold it was!)
We got our rentals and I’m excited to ski today!!! The big kids have a full day of ski school 9:30 – 3:30 and G has a half-day session from 1-3:30 during which time Josh and I are taking a lesson. It should be over 10F by then so definitely okay. I do feel like we got some pretty warm gear and I wasn’t even dying for the most part yesterday (though our time outside was not long!).
(I skied as a middle schooler and high schooler several times every winter in the Poconos. Hats off to the middle school Ski Club, which offered day trips for something like $50/kid! I even owned skis back then — Rossignols that by today’s standards were laughably long. BUT then I have gone a very few times since — a couple times in college and right after, and maybe once in 2005 or so!?!? I hope it’s like riding a bike but plan to treat myself as a total beginner!!!)
All right!!! Wish us luck 🙂 My two greatest hopes are that the kids have so much fun (and want to ski more) and that no one fractures anything.
