I am so sorry to have kept all of my fans waiting for so long. John and I just got back at the beginning of this week from our youth ski trip. It was awesome; we had 17 out of 23 in ski school and still no one was injured… talk about God’s intervention. And yours truly learned how to snowboard! I know I was amazed to. John thought I would give up, but I have the bruises to prove I did it for a whole three day. John also thought that I wouldn’t like snowboarding, he said “all you do on skis is snow plow the whole way down; you can’t do that on a snowboard.” Well did I prove him wrong! Leave it to me to find the hardest but slowest way down on a snowboard…backwards or as us pros call it, a toe wedge. That’s right, everyone else goes straight down or even goes down forward (a heel wedge) but not me, the easiest way I found was going down backwards. Just another thing John can add to his list of strange things about me. Sorry I don’t have any good pictures of the miracle of me snowboarding, but here is the whole gang. I am in the yellow sweater and light blue jacket... and no I am not that fat it is all of the layering. For more picture you can look at our youth ministry site.
