For the past 3 years Jacen and I have taken a father-son ski trip to Snowshoe. Since Emilee is now 5, we decided to make it a family trip and all go together. We rented a cabin with some friends and skied together. As we hoped, Emilee loved skiing. Her ski school instructor said she was "fearless" and ready for the next level. She has nice balance and can manage the bunny slopes pretty much on her own. In his class this year Jacen learned to control his speed by carving; I was quite pleased with his progress this year. He is quite capable of skiing any of the blues on the mountain. Ann spent most of her time scrapbooking and taking a well-deserved break. Overall, it was a great family vacation.
