Into the Abyss

on April 9, 2018

Hi Friends! How is your Monday treating you? Did you have a nice weekend? We are having some crazy weather around here….snow/rain…lots of slush and mud! Kind of gross outside to be honest.

We took advantage of the fact that it was snowing on Sunday and headed to the Resort for our last day of skiing (closing day is this coming weekend and we have no intention of braving that crowd).

Visibility was a bit, er, limited on the top.

These two. My heart.

It was some pretty great snow up top and some pretty heavy slush at the bottom.

We were able to show Ken our fave porcupine who was still in his tree!!

Sent Ken up to do a couple of solo runs in the good snow while we played in the gondola. Just happened to get on the Smartwool sponsored “wool room”!

Ken made his last run end near the base and got the truck to move it closer so we didnt have to walk everything back with Brooke. #gamechanger

Since it was early and town was quiet, we popped into our fave Mexican restaurant for dinner! We were literally the only people there for the first 20 minutes or so! Winning for sure!

She can make any hat look good πŸ˜‰

The rest of the afternoon included couches and the hot tub. And then some work on the couch.

This morning started off dark and early as Ken and I hopped on the trainers before 6 am. Time to get back into the habit until the weather lets us play outside some more!

Ken left for work and B and I got going on her school work. Some math, some letters and then her favorite, science. We made some fun slime and she went to town with her animals.

She worked on abcmouse for a bit while I got in 4 miles on the treadmill. Working towards that race at the end of the month!

Now it is all chores, all afternoon! And then it is conference calls/dinner making and grading all evening. A total Monday πŸ˜‰

Any fun plans this week?? We have plans to venture into town for some fun and errands tomorrow. Hopefully the road will dry out a little πŸ˜‰

    So jealous that you live so close to the slopes. Is it a pretty far drive to the slopes from your house? When we stay at our condo there are days where we walk to the slopes but generally we catch the resort van. Do you plan to have Brooke go to school in Steamboat when she gets older? I have heard that they have some pretty great school and ski programs there! πŸ™‚

      Hi Lindsay! It is about 40 minutes for us to get to the resort. We dont mind the drive-it’s gorgeous! That is awesome that you are so close when you are here. Something super fun about being close enough to walk!
      Brooke will be 5 in June so she technically could start kindergarten. I think that I am going to homeschool her for at least next year. I have heard great things about the schools and we could actually do the North Routt Charter School which is awesome. But since she will be in school forever, I am not ready to give her up yet. Plus, we will have ski passes next year and it leaves a lot more flexibility πŸ˜‰ The ski programs are fantastic. It is incredible how much she improved this year and she will continue lessons next year as well! She is already faster than I am!
