Over president's day weekend we took a ski/snowboard trip overnight to one of the local ski resorts. Well, mostly local, it's about 2 hours south west.

Danielle was one of two students on the whole base to win the Civil Rights Essay Contest! She was awarded with a $40 gift card and lunch at the club where she would read her winning essay at a luncheon to close out the black history festivities here on the base. She amazes me every day and I love this girl! We are so proud of her.

So I don't think moving here I realized how much snow northern Japan gets. It's crazy! It's different than anything we grew up with. Because it's constantly snowing we don't get the ugly gray snow. It's beautiful, and of course cold. We knew shortly after coming that Danielle's sixth grade class would get the opportunity to visit the most famous snow festival in Japan, The Sapporo Snow festival. As soon as we could Dan and I both signed up to be chaperones on the trip. Of course the year we get here they decide to stop letting the sixth graders go after twenty-three years of them going!! So, we decided to just go on our own.
