Night Snowboarding @ Big Mountain

Posted by Picasa

It took awhile for the snow to finally arrive so this is our first time out snowboarding this season. In October Krysteene got a new snowboard, as an early birthday present, and was finally able to blow the dust off it and take it down the slope. Krystian & Krysteen have been snowboarding for 3 years now and they both seem to prefer going to Big Mountain for the night skiing which is offered on Fridays and Saturdays. The night skiing is nice because there are less people out and no glare from the makes for a real fun time.

Build & Grow @ Lowe's

Over the past few months we have been taking Kyersten and Kenneth to Lowe's for the Build & Grow workshops. Lowe's sponsors 2 workshops a month and the projects usually match the theme for the month. In October they built wooden Jack-O-Lanterns, November was a Semi-truck tailer and race car, and football goal posts and in December it was a Gingerbread house. The kids are given "I built it" certificates along with a theme patch for each project they complete. They both enjoy working on the projects and count down the days to the next one.
