Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve had a really unusual, but not unprecedented, warm winter. The Farmer’s Almanac says it’s an “El Niño” year (last one was 7 years ago) which means a mild winter and warmer temperatures. That typically wouldn’t be a big deal except if your kids’ main winter activity is attempting to learn alpine ski racing. Desperately in search of snow and higher elevations, our kids’ ski program was compelled to relocate all the weekend training sessions from our local mountain (30 minutes away) to another mountain (2 hours 30 minutes away). Practically, what this means is that we wake up at 4 am to prep food and drive our sleepy kids up a mountain highway to meet their team and coaches at 7:45 am every weekend.

I’ve been told to expect to have my heart broken in coming years, with my kids gradually becoming more and more independent. People say that this hard season of intense, physical parenting will pass.

For now, we’ll continue on until April like this. We’ll just keep going, memorizing the Hamilton soundtrack, answering their life questions, eating snacks, and pretending that there won’t be an end.

The yarn is absolutely beautiful! I’m trying to hurry and finish the current project on my loom so I can get to this one.
Thank you for your kind assistance!
