Before I can write about our Ski Week,

There is another family at the school who is not celebrating the end of Ski Week and will instead be burying their 3rd grader as a result of a ski accident.

I don't know them but my heart goes out to them.

The chef in the Cafeteria (a very kind young Swiss man) also had a non-ski related accident this past week and passed as a result.

The kids will have a lot to deal with this week.

There are so many joys in life but many sorrows.

"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stonghold and my refuge, " 2 Samuel 22:2-3.

So - I will get posting about our adventures tomorrow. Not to make this a sad post, just sharing what we are discussing at home and being thankful for the blessing that we have today. We don't know what tomorrow will bring.

My heart is sad for those families. Praying for you as you talk to your girls and as they go back to school.

It's so tough to have to walk through these times with your kids. But it's a great opportunity to teach God's truth to them.
