More pics from Switzerland

Here are some pictures from our sledding adventure in Switzerland and then our great adventure the next day of climbing down into a waterfall and a rock gorge in the Alps. The weather the second day was amazing and sunny . . .it was a great hike and Titus and I went a little farther than mom and sis, who backed out when the steps got to steep into the gorge! Afterward Titus walked up and told mom, "It was no big deal mom!"

Worlds greatest Dad!!

I should learn at some point to stop taking my family on "Adventures"! I was deadset on sledding in Switzerland with the kids today . . . Why do I do these thing! You can't tell on the video but there were some horrendous moments . . . I just didn't have the heart as a father to turn on the camera as the kids were crying and freezing! Enjoy.

Why can't anything be simple!

This semester has posed a number of challenges . . . and the past 2 days has felt like a culmination to this entire semester. On Thursday night at around 11:00 pm a weather system from the Artic blew into Germany and we started to get snow and it fell for about 18 hours. At 4:00 am on Friday morning I had a van run and there was about 6 inches of snow on the road. It was so bad that I couldn't get a van up a hill right by the dorm and I didn't know what I was going to do . . .luckily I went another way and we were able to get students to the airport in time! Please remember our students we still have 2 of our guys who haven't made it home yet, they have been in limbo for over 48 hours and one of them may not make it home till Wednesday or Thursday!!!!!

The guys get really into this and it is mandatory that whatever gift they get they go crazy with excitement for . . .even if it’s lame. Check the videos!!!!

An Epic Creeking

After being here for a year and a half birthday creekings are pretty much standard fare! However, due to the warm temperatures of the past 36 hours all the snow has melted and on top of that it has been raining all day . . . all of this has led to lots of water and swollen creeks! In the field just across the street from HBR we have our very own pond . . . and that's where tonight's creeking/water fight went down. It was a lot of fun, and we were all pretty cold after it was over.
