Birthday and Easter

The end of season brought with it James’s 5th birthday, Easter, and a visit from Nana. James enjoyed opening gifts in the morning, spending the day with Nana, and then having his new friend Ellis and her family (our neighbors) over for pork “tender-line,” mac-n-cheese, and cake. Nana was also able to stay for Easter,Continue reading “Birthday and Easter”

Spring Skiing

The 2021/22 winter snowfall was well below average, but thankfully we got some good snow in March. Taylor and Jacob (Jim’s Dronelink colleagues) came to visit in the midst of the best powder of the whole season. We had a great visit with them and Jack especially loved hanging out with “Uncle Jake” who showedContinue reading “Spring Skiing”

Winter Wonderland

After the holidays ended and Nana headed back to Texas, we resumed school with the start of our second term. Our schedule includes at least two ski outings per week, and we started weekly piano lessons with Mr. Larry here in the Heber Valley. We didn’t get too far along with our term when, likeContinue reading “Winter Wonderland”

White Christmas

The boys both woke up sick on Christmas Eve morning. We kept things slow for most of the day, making cinnamon rolls and watching movies… …but, unfortunately, they didn’t recover enough to attend our candle-light service. We were in charge of music for the evening, so Jim and Evelyn headed up the mountain for church.Continue reading “White Christmas”

Hawky Halloween

The children decided to go as various birds of prey this year for Halloween: Evie as a peregrine falcon; Jack as a bald Eagle; and James as a barn owl. Separately, the Fox kids decided the same things, so Marijke and I worked together to create wings. The kids and I also made origami-like masksContinue reading “Hawky Halloween”

Smoke/Break

We took a slow day watching movies, so I could nurse my cold before our next guests arrived. And James helped me restock at the grocery store before our next (and final) guests arrived: the Abbott family. On Friday, we again drove the alpine loop to Sundance, stopping by Cascade Spring and checking out theContinue reading “Smoke/Break”
