Their firs Ice sculptures!

Close to our house, there was a great day of winter activities, these are some of the things we did: horse sled ride, eat Taffies, skate, ....

But the best of all the activities, was this!

These are my very proud sons after completing their first project on Ice sculpting.. they actually turned out VERY well, and the were set on a special table as a display (OK, I will admit... I AM VERY PROUD TOO!) ... they worked for hours on it...Son son M. made the head of a dog, and S made the head of a shark.

I'm reading....

It is a very good book, one of those that you need to read slowly and pray often about the things that you long for instead of God. "Give me this or I'll die!", "I would be happy if just this happened", "if I just could..., then..." What would be the thing for you, that your heart really loves? or longs for?.. until that desire becomes towards God, and truly we can say God is enough. With You and You alone I am happy. It is better one day in Your courts than thousands elsewhere... it is then, that we'll be truly happy. A happiness not depending on circumstances or monthly hormones or the vanities of this world, but in God alone!

lessons in life

I am the regular-medium competitive type person.... at least that is what I thought until the winter Olympic games started. It gets to a point where I am not enjoying watching them anymore. The stress I feel, my hands sweat, my body gets all tense .. my goodness! what happens to me!. I even turn in my seat when they are suppose to turn!. And the worst part, is that they are not even my kids!
We are having a great time as a family watching the games. Watching my boys so excited about their country to win medals, and yell as they score or are one of the first three!. It is good that they are only 3 weeks, keeping the school routine is hard.
Also, it gives you an appreciation of the hard work they put into it. There are lots of good lessons even at the Olympics. Like the one my son gave me just a few days ago:
On Mondays, we are going skiing, and the teacher took me on a black diamond (a very steep part of the mountain) and I stood at the top, completely paralyzed by fear, very close from crying. I turn twice, and on the second turn I fell and slid all the way down that part (not by choice). I was very upset at my self , How come I cannot do that!!!, Why am I SO afraid!. My pride was very bruised. and my sons encouraged me making me feel that I was not alone and that it was normal.., my son S. said: "well, you'll just have to remember that God made you like that , and its OK......... AND if you die, you go to heaven!" .. What!!?, yes, those were my son's encouraging words. So.. we'll just hope that one day, I'll conquer that hill, and go to heaven in a more pleasant way.

what's new?

I have not written in a while... here is a resume:
1. I joined CURVES and I'm loving it!.. I go 3 times a week early in the morning, is just 30 min, so I finish fast and feel great! With it, I'm trying to drink more water, which is my struggle (I'm never thirsty), but... I'm trying!

2. We are skiing some Mondays in a very nice place called Saint Souvar. It is a bit far (1h.30min), but worth the drive! is a very beautiful place. The boys and myself are taking lessons (S. is snowboarding and M and me, are skiing). The boys are good, but need some technique, which I need to get rid of bad habits.

3. I have been working on a small project, which is why I have not been writing here... I'm writing a unit study on Mexico. A bit of history with culture. I'm not finished yet and I may never publish it, but just for me and friends who would like to do a project on Mexico.

4. My husband got me a NEW LAPTOP!!, I'm so excited, because it works so much better than our old computer!. I can use skype any time without being "trapped in front of the screen, listen to "Reformed voice sermons" while cooking! I love it!

5. The boys started swimming lessons and they are so happy... even though it adds to the running of the day.

6. I CUT MY HAIR!!, quite short last week... I'll post a picture soon. I am very pleased. But the best part, is that my sons saw me and yelled: You look so young! ... hahaha! yes, I'm training them well!.... hahahah!, no wonder I loved the hair cut, he?

7. I joined officially "facebook"... which I'm still not too sure of the purpose of it.. but I'm in. The only benefit, is that I found friends from my kindergarten!... I cannot believe it still, by their picture, they look so different!. It is great to be in touch with them again.

8. what else?... I think that's it... I just need to post pictures as soon as I can... with my new look.
