so i went to CO last weekend to ski, which was interesting. I wasn't worried about getting hurt, I was very careful, but breathing was such a challenge. That, combined with the fact that I have done absolutely no strength training, even very little walking in the past 6 mos, made for less than usual energy on the hill. But it was fun, and, as usual, i sure appreciated the food. there was a french bakery in the little town, which was amazing! croissants, baguettes, panini, crepes. so good.
i know food at ski resorts is expensive. but i still nearly choked when my lunch here rang up to $10.07.
the kids definitely liked patrick betther than me by the time i got home! the next day they kept asking for him. charlie really says daddy well now.
hannah loves to "write" her name. its fun to see the different stages she is going through in the learning process. i think there are a few extra letters in there, but it's recognizable! (to me :-)
Believe it or not, it snowed this afternoon in KS. didn't stay, of course. we are doing well, baby is fine, as far as we know. charlie seems so old these days, he's just talking so much. can't understand much, but he knows what he wants. hannah is such a good helper when i'm babysitting, and enjoys the other kids. charlie isn't thrilled about sharing my lap, but i guess it's good for him. we are starting to look to easter, mom and bob will be coming to visit. hope it warms up soon!
