PRYM Ski Trip 2005

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.

I'm so jealous you got to go skiing. We were supposed to ski with my family over Christmas, but there is no snow in northern Arizona right now. It seems like ya'll had a great time. I can't believe you snowboarded. I am just sticking to skiing.

wow. I just rediscovered this blog by accident. I used to be an avid reader back in 2005 or whatever year it was that this blog was big and updated frequently.

When this blog disappeared, I started reading other sister in law youth minster blogs and forgot about this one for awhile.

Pretty cool stuff you write about here. Maybe I'll stick around.
