One of the gifts that some of the kids received this year for Christmas was the opportunity to go snowboarding the Saturday following Christmas. Bethany, Ryan, Alyssa and Ashley (KeriAnne's daughter) set out to have a lot of fun snowboarding and falling. Or maybe I should say lots of falling and less snowboarding on the girls part. Alyssa will make sure to tell you that she had to fall on purpose once, one of the supports for the ski lift was 3 ft. in front of her and she couldn't stop or turn, we all agreed that falling was a good idea in this situation. Ryan had lots of fun leaving the girls in the dust (or maybe a better word would be powder). He got to take a run on his own first, then took one run teaching or trying to teach the girls and then it was every man or woman for themselves.
