It's been a while since I've sat down to write a blog post. I suppose I was taking an unintentional break, and I actually wasn't sure I was going to continue writing this blog. But I think all the time of things I'd like to continue sharing with you, and I've gotten SO MANY lovely emails encouraging me to continue to write that what the heck, here we go again.
|spring cleaning of the boys room led to this interesting collection of treasures...
So heres a quick update of life since tryouts, and when its warranted, I'll expand on some of these as bigger posts.
|Laying around on the ranch with the boys for all of May and June was post tryout recovery...
When we got home, I spent a couple of weeks playing with my kids and laying around on the lawn. Ethan started a bikram practice, which is really helping him with some behavior issues he was facing. That was a bizarre parenting decision that I'm excited to share with you.
I applied for a scholarship to the Bikram teacher training which takes place in September, so stay tuned, they only give one a year and results come out July 15. My fingers are crossed, my spine is strong, my body is healthy and my kids are behaving thanks to this awesome yoga method, I would love love love to become a teacher and be able to incorporate this method into my travel coaching.
|Made the switch from skiing to riding, got the bikes out and put the skis away for now!
|Ethan, back on track, enjoying rebuilding and retiring a robot arm.
|The amazing Kurt builds up my new 29" Giant Anthem xc bike. Yes, I'm going to pedal this year.

Right off the bat, we've been lucky enough to have full clinics of eager riders who surprise themselves every day with their ability to ride in lose dirt on a big, fun, squishy bike. We are doing it! People are stoked and coming back for more!
|Pedal on! Ethan and Bodhi ride the rio grande trail in Aspen.
Tomorrow is the second DH race of the season, and now that my DH bike is running again, I've learned a ton from the cert course, and we got some RAIN today, and m neck feels awesome, Im super stoked to see just how fast I can ride that course! It's a long long ride, nearly 3 miles and descending 4000 vertical feet.
Summer at Snowmass is proving to be very very exciting, and I am just amazed when I look around at my life. Working for the Skico is amazing, my kids are so happy and excited to be in camp! The program at the treehouse is really just awesome. Today, they took tennis lessons and went swimming at the Snowmass Club. I mean, really. That's just awesome.
That's for reading and stay tuned, there's lots coming!
Lots of love and wishing you all a happy and healthy summer!
