School is in Session

And when you live in a ski resort town, this is what school looks like for a few days each winter:

Declan and his class get the scoop from their snowboard instructor.

Practicing what they learned.

"Mom, you're distracting me."

I feel certain that if I had had the opportunity to learn to ski while in elementary school, you would be seeing me at the Olympics in a few weeks. Or maybe I mean 20 years ago. I guess it's a little late to go now.

Clearly I have never lived in Colorado, or come to appreciate snow sports, because I look at those pictures and all I can think is "Brrrrrrrr!!!" :)

Glad you guys are enjoying it, however!

When I lived in Fraser (Winter Park) I envied the kids that got to spend every Monday on the slopes... a 4 day/week of school sounds like a deal to me!

Hope this promised storm dumps lots of the white stuff on you this weekend!

What a beautiful classroom.
