Well, we had a really great family ski trip! We actually had everyone there! Happy to report that there were no major injuries, although a few minor crashes meant some sore muscles for a few days after the trip! Although Brandi and Courtney had to work up on the hill we were able to see them a few times throughout the day!!! Courtney even snuck in a few runs with us! Brandi couldn't because she's expecting a baby and also has a bad knee.... Mandy, even came although she hasn't skied for a couple of years! She did great and only had one major blowout! She was the camera happy photographer so we have her to thank for such awesome memories! We were really happy to be able to spend some quality time with the family before heading of the the greek isles! Jeremy showed off for everyone and did a few backflips, there was tons of really great snow, and we pretty much all skied together all day!!! Dad had a bad back and had to slow down a bit from normal. What else, oh yes, it was sooo hot!!! It was definitely spring slush skiing but we still had a blast. It had snowed so there was powder it was just a little heavy. By the end of the day we had all shed a few layers because we were too hot. I even skied with no gloves cause I couldn't bear the heat... Overall we had a really great time and are sad to not have a few more family activities before we leave! The countdown is officially at 2 weeks! It's coming quickly and we hope we are prepared! :)

We can barely believe it ourselves but it really is going to happen! We are burned out with all the amounts of school work we have but keep plugging through because we know in the end it will all pay off!!! The countdown is officially less than one month. It kinda feels like I have way too much to do and absolutely not enough time to do it but it's good to be busy! We have both had success in selling our cars which puts us one step closer to being all ready to go. . . .In just a few weeks we'll be finishing finals and heading out!!!
