It's a Pow Pow day!

It's been a big weekend here! Saturday I coached for the first day this year. Great kids, although some may be more challenging to work with than others. I had to have a discussion with one little boy after he decided that beating on other parents, kids and coaches during lunch was fun. I called him over to me and said "Do you know what respect is?" (He's 5) his very prompt answer was "The Queen of Soul" I looked at him confused and asked him what he said and his response was "The Queen of Soul, she sings a song about respect." I'm trying very hard not to fall over laughing! Out of the mouths of babes.

This weekend I had the privilege of staying at my family's vacation home in Vail with colleagues two of whom were visiting from Europe. Saturday night we enjoyed dinner at my personal favorite restaurant, Dish. We all delighted in the 6 courses that were served with the tasting dish. Personally, my favorite was the dover sole en papillote with maple roasted root veggies. On Sunday we skied Vail and delighted in 17 inches of snow in the last 48 hours. Of course, now my legs are punishing me for skiing the knee deep powder but it is worth it for sure! I'll have photos of the day toward the end of next week and will post them when I can.

Hi Robyn. :) I saw that a blog titled "Living in the Rockies" had linked to my blog and I wondered if it was you! Welcome to blogging. I'm trying to get restarted after too long away from it.......

Great pic of you, btw.

Thanks Alysha! That was taken at the top of Vail Mountain this summer by my mama. And I noticed that you've posted a bit more in the last week or so, glad to have you back.
