Well, we are officially on break. Our district takes two “spring” breaks, one in February and one in April. We have been enjoying the Olympics and hanging out in our jammies:) Of course, it wouldn’t be a school break with out
sleeping in getting up early on a Saturday for a snowshoe race. As a reminder…no one in my family likes to snowshoe. They actually call it SLOWshoeing. Sam was asked by the alpine ski coach to enter into the Colorado State Snowshoe race along with 3 other boys from school. He was hoping to create a dream team to win. Unfortunately, it landed over break and it was snowing sideways, so two of the four didn’t show. Sam ran well and came in 9th overall and his friend won the 5k race to become the Colorado State Snowshoe champion. It was his first time on snowshoes! HA! It was a fun morning watching the boys run and we didn’t even mind getting up early to get them there!
Sam is in the bright green hat and blue coat….
It’s funny how every time I get a prompt, I try to figure out how I can fit one of the kids into it. Today my photography prompt was pink.
We had a hard time deciding on THE picture to submit but luckily you (yes, you! Grandmas and Grandpas) get to see more 🙂
What we did do was laugh and have loads of fun. That’s really the easy part. Choosing was the hard part because my girl is gorgeous.

Sam participated in a ski mountaineering race today at Copper Mountain. He raced really well and made it into the finals. We sure are proud of him. He has really found a sport that he loves! Who knew someone could love running uphill in ski boots!?!?
It was another beautiful day for nordic ski races. Today we were at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby. Our girls are blessed to be able to race in this gorgeous place surrounded by snow covered peaks and valleys. Alice and Paige both raced well. Alice had a collision at the start and had a hard time coming back from it. Paige went out well and passed quite a few racers to make it into the top 15. We are so proud of them, no matter the place. They are both strong, tough skiers! Scott, Mason and I threw in our skate skis with the hope that we might get to do a bit of skiing too. Luckily the races were all delayed an hour so we did a couple loops before and after the high school race.

On Wednesday night, Alice competed in a race at the Frisco Nordic center. She and her bestie did a fun night relay.
This week was a full one so I had to catch up on a couple of my pictures today. It was finally really snowy. Happy Sunday to all of you! Oh, some of my shots are out-of-order. Sorry. It suits my life this week 🙂

Since he was little, Mason has always said that when he grows up, he wants to be a professional basketball player. Other ideas have come and gone, but he has always stayed consistent on the basketball thing. He had his first game on Monday night and his team won. He didn’t get a basket but did have a couple of shots. Man was he excited! He definitely needs some work on the offense/defense part of the game but when he gets that dialed in….look out Denver Nuggets!
I can tell you one thing for sure…his enthusiasm for the game and life…it’s contagious.
