Happy Christmas! Gifts ABOUND!
Hello Hello! It has been a while. SO many amazing things are happening, amongst them the fact that I can sit down at my computer again!
My little sister has moved to Aspen! Yay! She lives with me and the boys and it is SOOOo good for all of us! If you are a knitter, or wish you were, you should check out her amazing blog at Knitfreedom.com.
Tom, Ethan and Bodhi's dad, came down and stayed with us for Christmas. This was a long time in the works, and took dedication and trust from both of us. I'm proud of all of us, there is a gentle space, forgiveness and a desire to forge our friendship on both sides. What an amazing Christmas gift for everyone in the family! We had a wonderful time playing and living together, and I'm grateful. Tom has decided to move to Aspen, to be close to the boys, and I can't believe how lucky we all are. He's looking for a place on the ranch, yay, the boys will be able to run from house to house, and we will be able to play all together.
My mom came out to visit, which was wonderful, as did my sister Beth, who I only get to see once a year, as she is incredibly hard working in the film industry in LA. I think they may literally keep her chained to her desk.
Bodhi has been going through some tough stuff at school, and in ski school, and I think we turned a big corner right before the break, and Tom coming down and everything going so well has just served to underline his new, happier perspective.
After many ons and offs, we celebrated Ethan's birthday at the ARC in the pool, thanks to all who came to that, and we have decided to hold the skating and broom ball party in January or February.
Christmas is always a crazy time, its when the money is made if you are a ski instructor, and so we are all working our tails off every day. Making hay, as it were.
There were about 16 days of intense training before the lesson season started, and they went really well. I'm eager to write about all of it, training with Andrew Wilson and Jonathan Ballou, and continuing to work with my MA group to prepare them for their Cert 2 and 3 exams.
I'm so grateful to be back at the computer and writing again, thank you for your patience, all will be made clear! (well, maybe not all, but I'll do my best.)
Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year to all of you!
