I usually always post the incredible things we are doing at school. Today, I'm breaking away to share a personal note. Jack and I were blessed to have the last week with our kids for a fun week of skiing.
On the last day, our oldest, Josh talked Jack and me into riding to the very top (trees stopped growing up there) and ski down. A little note about my skiing, I'm confident and good on skis. but not GREAT. Nor am I a risk taker!
It was an incredible thrill. As I got back where trees were growing, I thought about the kids in my class and the risk they take everyday. For some, sharing their writing, raising their hand to answer a question, or trying a new strategy! Confidence comes from trying!
Oh, and the last picture... My favorite! Even little Walker tried something new...sledding!
