Jimmy petted every animal that was out for petting. I could show you but you would probably get bored.

He petted this goat and then went to his face to have a chat and say hi. The goat was not interested.

2013= a day of skiing (or morning) for Isa and I!  I talked to my friend, Talleri, on Wednesday afternoon and we decided to go skiing on Friday. I had to cancel piano lessons, a dentist appointment, and find a sitter for the whole day.  I did it! It was so fun to ski while Isa was in ski school. It was just an hour and a half of skiing but I loved it!

Isa went to ski school. She definitely needs more instruction but she had fun. We went up the bunny slope a few times afterwards and then tried to go on the chair lift. We didn’t make it on the chair lift. Mostly it knocked her over and I had to jump off the lift so I could stay with her. Then it took us like 5-10 minutes to get out of the way. We were seriously stuck.  Isa enjoyed telling her buddy all about it.  Here she’s at school.

IMAG0218

After skiing, we went sledding. It was a big hill so it took a long time to walk back up. It was super fun. Isa and Evelyn.

Happy 2013…so far super great!
