Last Year's Travels and Recent News
Wow! I feel like a lot has happened in these last few weeks; It's been really exciting...
I just got my driver's license and I've been CRUISING! Also, I wrote a fictional short story that you should go read if you haven't already! It's actually pretty hard to try to make sure that you're using the right vocabulary for a story that's supposed to be written in the 1790's, (especially when your trying to study for sketchy school exams)! Don't get too mad if I wan't completely accurate, okay?
Anyway, I've been thinking about a really fun trip my family and I went on last fall. It began in Washington State, and like usual, my grandparents hosted us...
Finholm General Store, (my great-grandpa's store from back in the day sits right next to my grandparent's home)
After a few days in Gig Harbor, we went off to Idaho and took a long trek to get to a ski resort. My Mom's brother co-owns a condo in Sun Valley that he stays at yearly; he let our whole extended family stay there with his family for Thanksgiving! We had such a blast.
Secret Hotspring spot
After a few days of fantastic snowboarding and a huge Thanksgiving feast, we headed home and bided our farewells to Mount Baldy and the land of Potatoes.
