But don't think for a minute that it's just a game. Virtual athleticism is no joke people. (We were so pumped up from all of the Wii bowling that we all went to the real bowling alley to see how our cyber skills translated into real life and it was dismal. My score on Wii: 225, my score in real life: 89).
We had a yummy brunch at Thayer Hall after church on sunday. It was Skylar's naptime but just as he was about to melt down we started in on the desert buffet....and suddenly her spirits lifted. She really enjoyed her biscotti....specifically the chocolate side.
You can't beat the view of the Hudson river:
Skylar was too busy to be in the pictures (note the filthy knees).
Today Margaret, Bekah, Micah, Dennis and I decided to hit the West Point slopes for opening day. It was Bekah and Denise's first time. Nobody told Bekah how to stop so she pointed her skis downhill and screamed straight to the bottom. Denise on the other hand carried one ski around and ate candy out of his front poncho pocket.
We had to stop for a pizza break.
What is even cooler than wind pants? Why a windjacket tucked into windpants of course. A fanny pack would have put it over the top though. Maybe next time.
At the end of the day Bekah and Denise had mastered skiing so Bekah and I switched equipment for a little while. As it turns out, she should have been boarding all along, she was a natural! Me on skis....not so much.
