I'm half way through my trip back home. So far, I've had a great time with my family and have managed to stay pretty busy.
Last weekend I went out waterskiing for the first time in two years. I seem to only get to ski in May now. The weather wasn't exactly ideal, but it was calm, so I can't complain.
My brother is a lot better at skiing since the last time I saw him. And between his GoPro ski mount and my mom in the boat, I think we had about 200 pictures per session (literally).
Tuesday I met with my high school coach, Ted Theyerl, and Chippewa Valley Nordic (CVN) for a little dryland and story time. I'm not much of a speaker but I did try to show the kids that I was right where they were a few years ago. CVN was actually just getting started when I was in high school. At the beginning it was just three other guys, myself, and one girl.
I was blown away at how quickly the CVN team has grown. On a busy spring night, it was hard to know how many would make it, but we had a good dozen middle and high school age kids and another 6 or 8 of their parents. That's just to say that the group has grown exponentially in a few short years. It was pretty cool to see all those kids so gun - ho about Nordic!
Where am I?
