I am sitting here in the heat of summer, melting away and trying to plan activities for this winter. I promised the family we would experience snow this winter, so I am using it as an exercise to help my mind go to a cooler place. It isn’t working! We haven’t taken the kids on a ski trip for about 4 years. It think it was our trip to Wintergreen Virginia in February 2011. Look how small the kids were! So, it is time to hit the snow again.
