My sister, Brooklyn, turned 8 on March 20 and my brother, Beau, turned 17 on March 24 so we went skiing right in the middle on March 22 to celebrate both birthdays! (and partly because it was "girls ski free" day)
Everyone can out-ski me now. Brooklyn zooms ahead, blond pony-tail flying behind her. Beau zooms ahead all ducked down low and flies over jumps, making me shiver. Dad zooms ahead, carving the mountain behind them to catch them both on video so Mom, (cuddled in front of the cozy fire at home) can watch them ski! This leaves me snow-plowing down the hill by myself as I try not to run into other people's paths. As for me, I would have a heart attack if I were to go any faster, so I'm quite content to coast down on my own time. I'm proud of my speedy-skier-siblings, though! We had lovely weather and good friends to share the day with us.
I know I have said that I would continue to blog about Africa and I haven't done that yet. I just got to college so my blogging time is going to diminish significantly, but I hope to update once a week or so and be able to share some more pictures, stories, and last thoughts about my time in Tanzania.
