It was the idea of a moment like this (above) that gave me the courage to say yes to moving ALL the way back home to the US after going through so much to make our move work in Dubai. We get out so much more with the boys than we did back in Dubai – even in the dead of winter. We are so lucky to live in the US! Staying at Gigi’s house is so much fun. Now that we’ve all settled in the boys and I are already thriving. I’ve been going to a yoga class a few times a week and loving it. I forgot to pull my mat out before everything got packed up in Dubai so I bought a new one today. Ohhhh boy, I am so excited about my new purchase. Holy Mackrel, I’m a lucky girl! Love all those deep breaths, nothing like having a lot of oxygen in your face and body to make you feel healthy and alive. Being outside is so good for the soul and with the job search taking a toll mentally we are trying really hard to get out.
All the boys were such good sports – no tears, except for Mr. Finn’s at the end. Time to go! Luckily it wasn’t too cold, and the snow was packed down enough from the early morning snowshoers that we didn’t punch through much. The boys were in church shoes, so Ryan carried them most of the way. It isn’t about the gear, right? They actually loved it. I think we all did! We of course had the camera in the car, and maybe all the photos are excessive, but who could resist?! These mountains – wow!
