Red Day

Annika had Red Day in school today.  Not sure what the significance of it was but I think it had to do with being “drug free”.


I looked on line and saw a few links to the Heart Association promoting women’s heart disease prevention programs.  I also say several links to Red Ribbon Week which promotes “drug free” in schools.  I think it was the latter this week in our school.

Ski Mountain High

This week Anjali took the kids to the Mountain High ski resort. It is about a 1 1/2 hour drive from our house and with all the precipitation we have had in the last few weeks, the ski resorts have the best snow in years. They had a beginner program for the kids and by the end of the day, all three were zipping down the mountain.

Here is Nikhil and Vikram at the beginning of the day at their lesson.

Here is Miss Annika at her lesson.

Aren’t they lucky to “cut” school and go skiing for the day!
