Changing Seasons

Summer is almost over. The last two mornings here in Tampa have been in the low to mid 60's. We went to the beach this past weekend, and while the water was still warm, the breeze was a little chilly when you came out. We may be able to make it to the beach once or twice more before the water gets too cold to be fun anymore. For me that's when it gets below 80.

Now it's time to start thinking about the Ski Trip!!! If any of you don't know, this is an annual event and a time honored family tradition (hence the capitals). We have made modifications and improvements on the trip and our stay in the mountains based on things we have learned from experience. Our destination, however, and the basic structure and logistics of the vacation have remained the same for 17 years. My son was not able to spend his first Christmas with any other family besides me and his father. But bringing him on his first Ski Trip with his matching sweater more than made up for it. The Ski Trip is as much, for us, of a tradition and time to celebrate family as any regular holiday is to anyone. Trevor is now part of an almost 18 year old tradition, and in a few more years he will look forward to it as much as any of us.

Other news: I took a test this weekend to attain a certification for my job. It is not required, but is definitely beneficial. I was a little nervous going in to it, but it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. They allowed 3 hours for the test, and I finished in about 1 hour. I was notified immediately that I passed (Yay!!!) but will receive the full results of what I missed and what I got right in the mail soon.

Have a great week!

Enjoy the slopes. I tried skiing, many, many, years ago. Not in my blood, but I can appreciate it.
