Wow, a busy time you've had! But it sounds like the kids really loved the snow and skiing! I'm impressed with how well they did, amazing really how quickly kids can pick up a skill like that. My boys were a bit unsure about having a lesson when we went down last month, so we will wait until next year.

It sounds like you all had a great time at the snow and your kids did so well with the skiing too. Well done! My kids would love to see it but in QLD there isn't much change of that happening, lol. It was 27 degrees here today and we're in for a warm one by Sunday (about 31 degrees). I think I would prefer some snow!


love the mood of that first pic! Sounds like you guys had afantastic time at the snow.


Didn't they do well with their skiing. I think we may have left it too late for the snow here but just might have to go see.


What an awesome time you all had Trina. So do you think Matt will be asking Santa for a set of skis now? LOL.


What an awesome experience for them both. Well done you for taking them on your own :)

We had a great time in China - thanks for putting us on to Paul, he was great. (There's a rundown on my blog).


Those photos are great. I love the mountain shot. It's beautiful. Matt looked so happy. Bummer about the weather not being perfect but it didn't matter anyway. You'll have to take them next year.


I'M proud of them! and you for your fantastic mothering! Looking forward to hanging out next week!

Trina! We took the same photo at about the same time on Sunday evening. I was staying in National Park because I was fetching my son home. It was a glorious day up the Mountain on Sunday so I'm glad that it was good on on Monday too. The weather up the Mountain is so changeable as we have discovered this term.

We regularly get mice inside so we have an empty jam jar in which we trap them and put them out.

For those of you who still want to go skiing, the word up there is that the skiing will happen well into November. See my photos here: http://engel4nz.blogspot.com/2008/09/home-again.html


Wow the skiing break looks and sounds fantastic - I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better after such a long time of being 'below par' - sometimes just keeping going can make you axhausted!! Gosh I remember our cats bringing in huge rats at our last house - just awful!! take care.


Wow - lots happening in every way. The mountain visit - what an experience for you all. :)

As for the rat... euuuw!
