Our flights out of Columbia and into Vail on Saturday morning were pretty easy. Olivia and McIver were ready and waiting to get up on Saturday morning when we woke them up. Olivia said she had been up since 3:00 and McIver popped out of bed easily when I went in to wake him up at 4:30. We had the usual concern on my part that we had not left early enough, but we actually made it in plenty of time. (Don't tell Will that I admitted to that!)
Had about a 2 hour layover in Houston. McIver played his DSi while Olivia and I took advantage of a Starbucks gift card (she had a lowfat strawberry frappucino and I had a skinny nonfat vanilla latte - yum!) from my Secret Santa at school. We also used our time on the airplane to get started on the school work that was sent home for the children. Olivia did a good job of keeping up with it, but it took some convincing to get McIver to finish his journal.
Dawn and David's flight from Dallas was delayed so we ended up getting to the Eagle airport just a little while after they did. Will and David took a few pieces of luggage and McIver on the bus while the rest of us loaded into Peggy Pa's car to get to Vail.
We spent the afternoon getting kids (and me) signed up for ski school and fitted for skis. Turns out that the gloves Santa sent to McIver were too big so we had to get him a new pair. The children enjoyed the hot tub and playing in the snow at the condo.
