If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in

The house is quiet and here I sit. Thanks to my buddy, Lisa, of Lisa Jump Photography, I have spent the last hour looking at old videos of our kids. She hit the jackpot over on her computer earlier tonight and has been sending me HYSTERICAL videos for the past few hours! Melt my sappy mom heart tonight. Todd made me promise that he wouldn’t wake in the morning to videos plastered all over Facebook and/or my blog. So listening to him tell my daughter to, “shake it like a salt shaka'” at age 3, will not make this post tonight.
So back to a video I can share. The weekend was just what I needed. We ventured out for a little quiet….well, I should say our family is never truly quiet and our version of relaxing did include skiing and dirt bike/quad riding. It was intermingled with some brother/sister fighting, but a TOTAL blast!
If you have followed this blog, you know that at the fresh age of 39 – I learned to ski. Bless my husband’s patient heart (he taught all three of us). So this is season 2 of the Gendreau Family Skiing adventures…….I’d say we are coming along well. I successfully made a video while on skis on Saturday. My multitasking abilities are improving (until that snowboarder almost took me out, ha)!
Cue the soundtrack…..
The rest of the weekend was filled with hot tea, good food, great company, movies about wooly mammoths and saber tooth tigers (thanks Nate), quads, dirt bike riding and some super fantastic spring-like weather today!
