No, we are not talking about golf swings (although that sounds pretty nice right now), rather the day to day routines around here. After the hustle and bustle that was the Holidays, in a wierd sort of way, it is kind of nice to get back to "normal." Dont get me wrong, having family around, visiting with friends, parties, presents, no work, etc...is ALL GOOD. It can just get a bit hectic. Oh well, it is what it is. Like every year, we were blessed with a great Christmas and awesome New Year. This year did lack the "surprise" of last year with all the snow...and the kids (and us) were bummed we didnt get to see any around this year. We did our best to make up for it by heading up to the Hyak Sledding hill for some sledding with the Doerrs. As always a ton of fun, but it was almost a bust as they just havent had enough snow yet to really get the hill going. Luckily, they opened it up after about an hour there...In fact the kids were the "test sledders" for the park ranger. So, we can take some credit for opening up the hill for the hundreds of people that were waiting as well.
Our biggest "happenings" right now are 1) Maddie playing basketball and 2) Steph helping put on the Hope School Rocks Fundraiser. As for Basketball, Maddie is really enjoying playing ball. As Steph says, you can tell she is "passionate" about it as she is playing super hard. Nothing against Soccer, even Maddie says she still like Soccer, but Hoops might be here thing. She especially likes to shoot...a lot! So we are working on passing a bit more.
The other big activity going on is the Hope School Rocks fundraiser. Steph graciously agreed to be the "leader" of the event. It is shaping up to be a great time..80's themed with a live band, catered food, dancing, etc. A lot of people are helping out and it is going to be "Totally Awesome" for sure. The ultimate goal is to raise money for the school and what Hope is doing for kids and families. If you are interesting in attending, donating, or even helping...give us a shout!
