Les Deux Alps

Tuesday we boarded and skied, but the weather was dreary and we bit off more than we could chew slope-wise speaking. We went all of the way to the top, which meant 2 hours of non-stop skiing to get back down to civilization. It was fun but exhausting! On Wednesday, we chose better runs and the sun was shining! It was my very favorite ski day. EVER.

Here are David and I, ready to tackle a challenging but do-able slope:

And here are the boys and I at the same spot. The photo does not capture the beauty of the mountains, it was absolutely breath-taking! And yes, Graham is making a "gopher" face. He can be silly, that way.

A view from the lift:

We only budgeted for two ski days this week. We will spend the rest of our week at the Gite working puzzles, playing games, and sight-seeing in the area.

We will be blessed with two more days in the same ski area next week, when we (all four) attend a GEM-Kids conference at Camp des Cimes. David and I are chaperoning/cooking/leading worship and the boys are participating as missionary kids...and helping to lead worship as well.

I am off to buy groceries for the rest of the week, delighted that I am not sore or hobbling, because we really skied hard the past two days!
