Today we decided to get a xcountry ski membership! I have not been skiing in years! Weather it be the kids were too small or we didn't have the extra cash or I didn't make time....but that is all in the past!

I get to go every night if I want! With the 2 mornings off a week(2.5 hours while the 3rd is in preschool) and then the trails being open until 9:30 and LITE UP, that enables me to get the time in.

A fairly new friend of mine said that she would love to go too. They just moved from China(worked their for 6years) and we are going to get the boys into lessons. They are excited too as another friend of theirs is a Jackrabbit as well.

My oldest son is into snowboarding but I did take him and his class two years ago for a field trip and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe I can talk him into a membership($15 for him if I buy a year for $130) and we can go at nights as well.

Here is a link if your interested in peeking in on the place.

Have you ever been "Booed"? Is it a tradition in your neighborhood?

I'm starting it tomorrow morning in our neighborhood. We live on a street that is short, about 10 houses, but we have a cul-de-sac that surrounds ours. I'm going to take one to the neighbor behind me and one across from me. Both have kids, so it should be fun to see how it goes!

If you do "boo" what do you include in your package? Candy? trinkets?

From tradgey to?

Where to begin?

There has been an accident and with it horrible consequences and an even worse healing. My son was lit on fire. Life has been really bad for the last 3 weeks.

Family has been put on hold and at home and for us all.

Speaking of family, we have had wonderful help and helping hands. Many shoulders to lean on and even alot of meals made :D I will be forever grateful and hubbled by the love we have recieved.

Through it all we have held strong and my son has been pillar of strength and courage. He's endured 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree burns on 10% of his legs. He's been in numerous amounts of hydro therapy, debridling, skin grafts and dressing changes. There have been copeous amounts of narcotics and lots of healing. Through it all I have been by his side, holding his hand and being patient.

It's not been all fun and games but we have come out(so far, the road is not over by far) with our sense of humour and sense of family.

Sooo...this is where I stop taking myself for granted, my health and my family.

Where it will take me? I'm wishing for big things but I will take babysteps to get there...and always remembering my sons strength, especially when the tough gets going.
