At least, that’s what it looks like… Today we held ski practice on the frozen Chukchi Sea. I can add this experience to the long list of thing I never dreamed of doing before moving to Shishmaref: skiing on a frozen ocean.

Today I skiied with the kids. This was my second time on skis. It went a lot better than the first time. 🙂 Today I went down a hill without falling down! It was lots of fun, although my legs are so tired now…

I am always amazed at how peaceful the snow makes everything seem. Even with twenty kids on the ice, it still seemed serene. The snow has a way of muffling sound.

After our warmup, we went up the big hill, where she skied a nearly black run. Woohoo!
