First Of The Season

Today we made the first of our weekly treks out to Wachusett. There was much excitement in the air this morning as we gathered up the necessary ski clothes (and skis!) and headed out for the beginning of our third year as a ski family. As we drove up the hill to the mountain it felt as if we were coming to visit an old friend who we hadn't seen in far too long. Goodness, was it lovely to be back! Once in the lodge we found a spot, grabbed some lunch and then the girls got suited up for their lesson. Having their own equipment this year is such a treat as it means that we do not need to be down to the Polar Kids Den half an hour before their lesson. Once ready, we leisurely made our way to the Den (after all when you've got thirty extra minutes that you aren't used to having you can be do things like walk over leisurely). The girls got checked in, I was given the necessary credentials to claim them later on and we said our "see you laters" and "have funs". Time flew by and before long it was time to pick up Grace (who had scored herself a private lesson since there were no other kids in her level at that time today). She arrived rosy cheeked and beaming after her time on the mountain. Her beloved moguls were skied, and according to her instructor she skied absolutely beautifully today. He was very impressed with her skills, and even mentioned that learning to use poles is in the very near future. She is beyond thrilled! Thirty minutes later we acquired Emma- the lone girl in a class of boys- and according to her instructor she "totally rocked it today"! After some hot chocolate and a snack we grabbed our bags and made our way to the car. The lodge was starting to get crowded due to the school kids arriving for after school activities- totally our cue to exit stage left. As we journeyed home the girls shared more stories of their fabulous day back. They are happily tired tonight (and heading to bed much earlier than usual) but are looking forward to next week already! xo
