So Maura created herself a comfy new little reading nook, “in order to get away from the other 2”, behind one of our chairs in the corner of the office.  Looks so cozy.

Poem that Finn wrote at school

My brain is like my connection to my eyes
My feet are like support beams
My ears are like cables to sound
My mouth is compassionate
My heart holds honor that is as yellow as sand
I live in a house
And eat mac and cheese

Finn has his famous men presentation at school today.  His famous man was Louis Armstrong, jazz musician.  He also did a presentation about another famous man, his dad, was very touching.

My dad always takes me to roller skate and I like it when he teaches me.  My dad and I love to fly drones.  My dad and I travel together so were not separated.  My dad and I have a time together called special time and I love him.

Here’s a video of his presentation:

Here are some statistics from @Slopes for our skiing trip at Camelback Mountain.

I didn’t have it running the entire time, this is just about a third of the number of runs, I went down the mountain on that long 1 mile run about 5-6 times while the kids were getting their lessons.  The 2 long runs recorded are the ones I did at the end of the day with Finn, so he did that mile long run from 686 vertical feet with me.  All 4 of us did the little run at the bottom of the mountain a number of times as well.

So Finn joined me at the top of Camelback mountain to go down some of the big hills, just beginner level but I was very impressed with how good he is getting skiing.

Here a view of how high up we went, to the top of those runs.

At the top, you can faintly see Camelback resort in the far background which is where we are staying.
