It's time for skiing!

Today was the first day of ski lessons for the kids. They were all really excited this morning! It is amazing how quickly they can get ready when they want to!! In fact, we didn't even have to wake them up because they were already out of bed and getting ready!! Now, if I can only get them to do this on school days!
Here they are just before loading their gear under the bus.
......and they are off!Colton will be learning the tricks to snowboarding and the girls are learning to ski for 8 weeks. The ski area is located about 40 minutes away. They get to ski from 9:00 to 3:00...long day, but tons of fun! The last week is the BIG ski trip to the Black Forest (awesome opportunity for them)!

It has been really cold around here lately and there has been an enormous amount of snow. It was like we were driving in a winter wonderland today. The trees have been frozen for the past few days and look beautiful.
Here's a close up....

What a beautiful winter wonderland! That ski package sounds wonderful (especially the part about them taking the bus!) Good luck to them!

(And WHY is it that kids can get up easily on non school days, but make life agonizing for us moms on school days???? URG!)

I'm freezing now from looking at your pics. Beautiful, but glad I don't live in it! Your kids are going to have so much fun! My son would love it too. My daughter would be sitting in the lodge with me.
