Off to the Races

We made it to another ski race on the weekend. The girls sure are getting comfortable with the race routine. Our venue was Sleepy Hollow, a quaint inn and touring center tucked in the hills of Huntington, Vermont.

I remember going to the same race last year and carrying Julia up the hill to watch the start of Ava's lollipop race. This year, Julia herringboned right up the big hill to the race course and skied the lollipop course without a parent accompanying her. She was confident, full of smiles, and said that she only fell once.

Ava joined a few boys in the 1st and 2nd grade race and finished so fast that I didn't even have my camera out. I did capture her huge smile when she got her water bottle prize.

We have one more race for Ava in a couple of weeks and then we're hoping to ski to the sugar shack at Trapps to sample sugar on snow. The "sugar" is maple syrup, of course.
