This weekend we had a great storm roll through Southern California. It just so happened that this was the same weekend we were taking our youth group on their winter retreat to go snowboarding. The weather could not have been more perfect. It snowed heavily on Friday; it stopped snowing a hour before we drove up the mountain (in a 15 passenger van and a jeep), was beautiful and sunny while snowboarding and then in the wee hours of the morning on Monday it started snowing again (We booked it out of there as soon as we woke up). We had great weather while we were there. The kids had a blast (no one got hurt this year, yeah!), and this time I got to go boarding. Last year I sat out with a 5 week old Ethan (he is more fun). This year we decided to leave Ethan with my parents for the weekend. It was my first time away from him. Chris and I missed him terribly, but he had a wonderful time with his grandpa and grandma and we got to focus on our junior high and high school kids. All around everyone had fun and now I am greatful that I have the week off and can try to rest. I thought a one year old was tiring, junior highers wear me out. Love 'em!
