She skis blacks!

Abby recently spent a day skiing with her bestest friend, Morgan. Morgan's dad (AKA one of our bestest friends, Derek) used to be a ski instructor, and he took the girls to Eldora for a day so they could learn to use poles and try some blue slopes.


By the time they came home, the girls had skiied some blacks. Crazy!
Thanks, Derek!

(Derek happens to be the husband of Abby's teacher at school. Shhhhh! Don't tell Abby's teacher she missed school to go skiing--ha!)

Up they go!
They look like naturals...
It was a beautiful day...
She's got the moves...
They look so sweet and proud!
(Yes, Abby is the tallest in her class....and I think Morgan might be the smallest!)
It was a fun and successful day.
I love Abby and I'm so proud of her. She's an earnest, smart, sincere, sweet, beautiful girl. The Lord has been very good to me in the Daughter Department.
