We had a fantastic morning at the Birkie. Matt & Joe raced the 50K, Hannah skied the 12K and I finished the Korte race of 23K. No extra medal for skiing it 20-weeks pregnant, but I sure had a lot of fun!

Junior Birkie

Fun race morning for the big kids. Fresh snow, both sets of grandparents, and the full Bettendorf cheering section. Yeah!

Rachel Quote

Mom was caring for Luke's foot after a wart removal procedure. Mom had a wash cloth and was wiping Luke's foot.
Rachel was carefully observing. All of a sudden she said:
"It's Just like the Disciples Mom."

We took the crew out to the Birkie trails this afternoon for a great ski. Finished up with pizza at the Sawmill. Precious day together!

Snow day

The blizzard last night left us plenty of snow to play in. What a beautiful morning for a hike in the woods!

Not quite big enough

Hans thought he was big enough to skip his nap today. Not quite, sweetheart.

Paper Demonstration

Today we learned about paper production from a man from the local paper mill. We enjoyed making our own paper.
