We have a long-standing tradition that when the children become 8 years old we take them to Utah to learn how to ski. Last year, the girls turned 8, but we felt that they were not ready to learn. Despite all the restrictions and spikes in the virus, we felt that we could still do this trip successfully. Outside of flying we have been pretty careful. The children are having a blast and we were right in that they are ready to ski! I do have to stay it has been a little bit limiting in that much of what we normally do is not available because of needing to sign up in advance or being sold out; however, maybe that is a good thing because we are able to spend time with one another and not run from one activity or another. The girls have really enjoyed seeing their brother, where he lives, and where he goes to school. We still have another week before we go home, but I am so glad we made the trip. Let's just cross our fingers that no one gets sick. I will apologize in advance this is going to be a photobomb. I just time have the time or energy to break this into several posts.
