It’s the Olympics!
I wish I could say I was able to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremonies, however, it has been too crazy at the Ranch to worry about TV much. This cold has kept us hopping and HOT. Yes HOT, our wood/coal stove has been keeping the living room/kitchen at about 90 degrees, however, the back of the house (our bedroom – the kids are in between) has been running at about 62-65 degrees. Thank goodness we ran over to the bunkhouse and got the beautiful Montana Wool Blanket we received for a gift to stay warm.
Ah I digress…back to the Olympics!
I’m so excited. Tonight is snowboarding and some more skiing but what I am really waiting for is the ski jumping! This is happening on Saturday Night and I absolutely think it is magical how these athletes are able to fly through the air while skiing.
After living in Montana in the hub of the skiing mecca — well, that’s how we think of it 😉 — The Rancher and I have decided that we will need to hone our skiing skills. Between the two of us I think we have been to the slopes a total of a dozen times in our lives. Surprisingly for myself because I grew up 30 minutes from Deadwood, SD home of two of the largest ski slopes in South Dakota.
Have you ever seen the young kids skiing? Like 2 and 3 year olds? I think we will try and find some skis for the kids and get them started on the Slopes of our place before we head up to Red Lodge, or Big Sky. Who knows, I might have the next Olympian on my hands! Maybe a curling champion and a speed skater?!
