Alice’s Nordic Ski Race {Numero Uno}

Okay, I have tons of pictures and posts stacked up and not a lot of time to write them.  Be patient with me; I promise to get to them.  We have been busy with a move at our store, alpine ski practices, nordic ski practices, Taekwondo, decorating for the holidays, school programs, band concerts and much, much more.

Last Saturday, Alice had her very first (ever) nordic skate ski race.  It was really cool for Scott and I because we raced downhill and this cross-country ski racing was all new for us.  Imagine about 35 or so girls at a mass start, on skis….Crazy.  Anyway, we were super proud of her.  She did awesome, especially because she had only been to three practices this season (due to her skis being on back order).

It is fantastic to stand back and watch my kids. Whether it is a sport, a class project or instrument, they amaze me with their strength and determination.

Way to go, Alice!  We can’t wait to watch you crush it at the next race!

Happy Thursday,

We are definitely on the countdown to Christmas.  I guess I better start wrapping!
