Nordic Season Arrives!

Hooray! Ski season is finally here in all its forms! We here in Morningstarland generally try not to over-schedule our kids. We don't do a lot of sports teams (admittedly, mostly because nobody in our home has actual interest in most sports) and we don't have lots of practices or music lessons or clubs in our lives. But all of that goes out the window once ski season comes - bring on the business!

This year Ben, Sash, and WanYing are all doing the Nordic Ski Team up at Sundance and so far they're having a great time in the snow. Ben also decided to do the Alpine Ski Team, so we are going to be spending a lot of time on the mountain this year.  Good thing on-mountain is our favorite place to be!

Saturday was the first race of the year.  It went well, except for the part where Ben got a little lost on course and wasn't sure where to turn so he decided to stay put and wait for somebody to come by. Perhaps not the best choice for a ski race but oh well.   Eventually another kid did ski by and after discussing the options they decided on a route.  So we have no idea how far Ben actually skied, but at least a good time was had by all and he did eventually cross the finish line!

Oh, and Sash did a marvelous job of lap after lap on the obstacle course.  I think her enthusiasm may have had something to do with the Laffy Taffy at the end of the course.
