^Merci TG.It just didn't seem real, my DH ski's a little, and I ski on my backside, and there are parents whose parents ski every chance they get with their kids. Just goes to prove, where there is a will there is a way.

It looks like you need to have a lot of lower body strength and balance. She must be proud of herself too.

Oh that's sweet Bucky.She got her certificate today, and she said, 'mama I enjoyed myself'for a minute I wondered whether she enjoyed being called up at assembly to get her certificate or the skiing, so I asked her what she enjoyed, and she looked at me and said, 'The skiing and winning house points for my house' I was blown away!

Oh my, Jikoni! Sounds like my sister's house in Italy when everyone came over for son #2's baptism. Grit your teeth, smile a lot, and don't talk much.

Leave LOTS of information around the guest rooms of things to do while in town - gets them out of the house during the day, hopefully.

ick, lacrosse practice for this week was cancelled - now suddenly it's back on, and I have to get back in the rush-hour traffic to take the girls about 6 miles from here.

It will take me an hour to get there and back.

Right now I am wondering if anyone from this forum makes their own potato chips and if so, if they care to share their secrets?
