Ski lesson for Jasper

We're here in park city, Utah skiing with friends. Yesterday I took Jasper to the Canyons for his lesson with Adalaide and Gideon. He was excited to go, comfortable in his winter gear - including ski boots - and ready to pop into his skis. We rode the red pine gondola up to the learning center and turned them over to their teacher, mr Paul. Paul is from way north England with a heavy accent like drew's friend Charlie.

Jasper was immediately comfortable on his little skis. He could slide them front and back to see how slippery they were. We watched a short time and then hit the slopes to get some blues in. We came back before the lesson was over to watch a little bit. Jasper was doing great!!! He loved the magic carpet, he aimed really well and even had good muscle control to make corrections to go where he was supposed to go (betw some cones). Each time he made it through, he'd say "I did it mr Paul!" (surprise surprise) Paul told me he'd totally be ready for an all day class with 4-7 yr olds. Crazy!

Overnight we got snow -yea!!!! Drew went out early with the guys and I went out before lunch with the girls. When I got back, drew loaded up Jasper and took him down to the Canyons to ride the greens. Jasper was excited once again! I can't wait to hear the report.

Here are some photos of jasper's lesson. Yesterday was cloudy and grey, so the photos aren't that great. Jasper's in all black.

He's a dipper

Benj has discovered the joy of dipping panera baguette in their soup - particularly the chicken and wild rice. Yum!

Awesome birthday lunch with all my guys!

Return to the sandbox park

After our winter "cold snap," the boys and were happy to return to one of our favorite parks yesterday.

And we were even more delighted that we were met by our friends Nehemiah & mrs Krystal and Adolai & mrs Brittany. Fun times!

Somehow I lost the sunglasses I bought in August for our trip to California.  I’ve been scouring the house and cars and church for them, but I cannot find them.  In February, while we were out running errands, the boys stopped to help me pick out a new (hopefully interim) pair. 

Jasper l-o-v-e-d this pair.  He said “i like these.  they make the store night.”  They match his shirt, too!  Benj loved his pair, and I’m so glad to have caught a side view since that shows of his bling best.  I think Jasper looks particularly “Jackie-O-ish.”
