We are on Winter Break here. I had not intended to take the week off, but with Bonnie and Todd both on break it was hard to push the boys to do school work. Besides, my reasoning to have them do school this week was to insure that we would be done with school by end of May, but since Bonnie and Todd have to do school for the first two weeks of June, we might has well have school work to do during those weeks as well. So here we are on break, and to be honest, I have enjoyed the week off.
Our break started with the North West Grace Youth Camp Winter Blast which is hosted at our church. Eighty teenagers and twenty adults showed up late Friday night for a weekend of fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth. Bonnie, along with five others from our church, joined in and had a blast.
On Wednesday, Todd took the kids skiing. With temperatures in the mid to upper 40s for the past few weeks, the snow is quickly melting. Not knowing how much longer we have left in the ski season we figured they might as well take advantage of the break and enjoy the slopes. Also, with Bonnie in school, she has not had the opportunities to ski like the boys.
