More pictures, for the most part.
On Thursday, our last morning in Maine, we had breakfast, loaded up the truck, and then Bill and Alex skiied over to the South Ridge Lodge and Julia and I drove over to meet them.
Julia and I waited by the outdoor fire pit until Bill and Alex arrived.
No idea where Julia's hats keep disappearing to. This is the third one she's worn this week, and it's too big for her. I usually wear it, if I wear a hat at all. Oh well, at least it's pink.
Julia got her skis on and demonstrated her ability to get up from the ground. No, really, this is a big deal for Julia. Until this past week, she hasn't been able to get up, unassisted, from a fall. Now she can. Yay, Julia! She can also get in and out of her bindings without help. Huge progress for the little girl.
I asked them to stay in a group before taking off, just so I could get a some pictures of the three of them together. In the last one they're finally all looking at me.
The next batch of images comes via Bill, who got some shots of the kids as they were skiing.
Apparently while they were out, they took turns being the "line leader" as they went down various trails. They went over some jumps, took some falls…at one point Alex and Julia were shoving each other as they skiied next to each other. Didn't get pictures of that stuff, though.
Here's what he did get….
Riding up the magic carpet…
They gave me a call when they were done, and I met them back at the fire pit.
And after that, we headed back to the truck.
Bye, bye, Sunday River.
