Thoughts on Jaunary and Our Ski Team. Your input requested!

I've been noticing this "semester" that homeschooling had taken on more ease for me--and I think for all of us.  There are a lot of reasons for this: we are more distant from the routine of traditional school (its been since June), our traveling and other daily activities have been naturally full of learning, the kids and I are all more used to homeschooling and what to expect from and do each day, we aren't doing a lot of other "activities".  For these and other reasons, it has been a good month.

One of those "other reasons" is that we've finally been able to do some skiing!  Yay!  Today Eli and I went to Squaw Valley and it was great.  They had received just a few inches of new snow overnight (and it snowed most of the day), and it made a difference. Eli is skiing very well and is a capable and fun ski partner.  Sophia and Grace are improving as well and it is a pleasure to spend days with them on the slopes.

As a final note, we are debating about names and logos for our family ski team to emblazon on team shirts and speak of in our family lore.  Please leave a comment if you'd like to give any input.  We are also accepting designs from blog readers, so send them in if you want to be considered.  We will let you know what we decide.  Once a logo and name are chosen, shirts will be available at cost so let me know if you are interested in having one.


P.S. To those of you who receive updates of this blog via email: sorry about so many new entries in one day!
