Why my youngest son Alex is of course!
Why would he want any more of this...
so he could go here !
His Ski Club at school finally got to go night skiing
at Big Boulder in the Poconos.
He's been rather bummed out because while
we've had lots of snow this winter
every time they were scheduled for a trip
there was too much snow!
to the ski resort that is.
So yesterday my sweet son finally got to use his skis,
and he was very happy!
My husband and I have been skiing for quite some time
and we made it a point to get our kids to the mountains
to learn to ski and snowboard.
This was extremely smart of us because
they became good enough that
we could send them off with the Ski Club
and not be too worried.
Now we can stay in the warmth
and comfort of home while they go out and do
this poor robin mistakenly thought spring was
arriving soon. He arrived here earlier in the week
when our temperatures rose to the mid 40's.
He was in for a SURPRISE on thursday when the snow
started to fall. It's saturday and still snowing here.
Some of his friends like this chickadee
are waiting to hit the bird feeder,
while this cardinal
forage beneath it for any fallen seeds they might find.
While I usually don't appreciate the mess
this guy makes and how he disturbs my gardens,
I even felt sorrow for this poor squirrel!
How many weeks until spring???
