"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~First Ski Trip

All of the Fourth Graders got to go skiing for free.  The local ski resort sponsor the schools to come ski with everything included, the kids just had to bring warm clothes and lunch.  They all had so much fun.  This was the first time many of the kids have ever skied. Jolene did really well, she was able to take the ski lift up and ski back down.  I had to catch my breath when I saw her on the ski lift all by herself.  I couldn't believe it.  She looked so laid back and relaxed.  She had so much fun, she wants to know when we can come back. It was a pretty cold day but I don't think any of the kids noticed.  Once they came in to get ready to leave I got Jolene some hot chocolate which she loved as she defrosted. I drove up separate from the bus which was a good thing because the bus broke down on the way home.  I was able to take her with me so we could still make it on time to get Raychel from school.  What a great day.  It was fun to be able to spend the day with Jolene and watch her expand her wings and try something new.  I am so blessed to be a stay at home mom to some really great kids.
