Cross Country Skiing

Ok, just a quick little note. I volunteered to help out with Dylan's cross country skiing gym class this morning, I wasn't brave enough to try the skiing (although, I wish I had - would've been even more fun) however, I tried the snow shoes. Well, I didn't get very far. After getting all the kids in their skis and on their way, I put on the shoes and started walking...walked right out of them. So I put them aside and just walked around to get a few photos of Dylan. I was VERY impressed with the ski course these teachers set up! They clearly put in a LOT of work! They had several different trails, with great names like Secretary's Super Highway, and I can't remember them! :( I'll get them from Dylan tomorrow, but there were 5 or 6 of them, mostly named after teachers. I think one was Mr. Bell's Bypass - which is the principal. I love his school, has to be the best in Prior Lake. The teachers there are just awesome. All teachers are awesome, Shay!, and I have the highest respect for them. I definitely need to volunteer more and get more involved again...while he still gets excited for me to do it! His teacher told me that he told her at least 4 times that I was there to volunteer and asked if she'd seen me. :) They were only up there for about 10 minutes. Cute. Anyway, so the gym teacher was telling me how Dylan seemed to be a natural at this, and informed me there's a high school cross country ski team. ;) Now I'm thinking we need to get some cross country skis of our own and get out there and practice. Not only is it good exercise for me, but it'd get him out and doing something during the winter. And a good reason to get the dogs out too! So if there's anyone else that wants to learn with me, let me know. Apparently even those in NC can do it now! :) Whacky weather this year!

Also, I'm not sure why, I got your messages - but I can't figure out what the deal is with not being able to leave me comments. I'll try and get that fixed soon. Maybe it has something to do with the background that I have encoded, because I went to the settings and it seems like everything is set correctly to allow it. We'll see...I'll have more time this weekend to work on it.

Love to you all!
Give baby Jordyn a kiss for me Shay! And a hug to yourself for the AWESOME work you do, not only as a mother, but as a teacher! xoxo
