When I Think of Home...

I think of a place where there's love overflowing......

We went to see The Wiz tonight.  It was a fabulous LVA(High School) production.  It was our third year seeing their spring musical.  I loved when Dorothy sang Home.  I wanted to remember the first two lines of the song.

Black Belt

I finally did it!  Last night I earned my black belt.  The kiddos and Jim also went up a belt.  I don't know whose thumb that is, but....I agree!

Skiing at Flagstaff

This can't be comfortable!  But he didn't complain, and skied like this most of the day.  

Quinn loves Uncle Devon.

Jim and I waiting in a very long lift line.

Couch Surfing

We went skiing with my sister and brother in law last weekend.  After a nice dinner at the cabin, and a few glasses of wine, my brother in law talked me into signing up for Couch Surfing.  Couch Surfing is an international organization for travelers to host each other in whatever way the host wants, from meeting for coffee to having surfers stay at your home.  He didn't have to twist my arm too far, he has been doing it for years, and I have had some experiences through him, mainly in Ireland.  It was a couch surfer who called us to that glorious town of Killaloe, and then proceeded to invite us to a Waldorf School's advent fair in Ireland-a definite highlight of our trip.   

Today we had our first couch request...a couple from Paris to come next month!  We e-mailed back and forth, and expect the Parisians to be here in March for a few days.  We are all so excited to hear about Paris, especially before we go in June, and to practice our French for a few days.  An international experience brought right to our door!  How wonderful!

We wrote down what we hope to accomplish in the coming year, and what our passions are.

We read a verse....according to Las Vegas weather on February 2, winter has another flight.

We lit lots of candles and ate crepes for dinner.
