On Saturday we had a family talent show. There were a few poem recitings (I recited Casey at Bat), some songs, grandpa played the guitar, and I did a mime act. We also did a few skits it and comedy sports. It was fun!
Steve and I finally broke in our Christmas presents to each other. We found a perfect, groomed cross country skiing trail up the canyon. We had such an amazing time Saturday morning, that we took off at 6:30 on Monday morning for an encore while the children were sleeping. The trail is a gentle incline up the canyon for a great workout and then you get to coast all the way down for your reward. Can't wait to go again!
For school this week I was able to go to the State Capital. First we went to a committee discussion. They where discussing a bill on whether or not they should have a day off of the ten pre-election-day voting period. Then we when to the House of Representatives for two hours. It was soooooooooo boring. I am not even going to put an exclamation point on that. Then we went to lunch and things started to pick up. We got a tour of the capital after lunch and then we got to go watch the senate for a while. It was really cool and I was able to get to places others didn’t because my friend’s aunt was a representative and I got access to otherwise off-limits. J it was really neat! I liked the Senate a lot more than the House. They where a lot more friendly and relaxed and they got through bill ten times faster than the House.
