This week in BSM we have had Anne and Klaus visit, they arrived with the snow and brought the sun.....we've had 6 consecutive days of sun, the first time this year, which is wonderful to ski in, but does indicate the changing of the seasons, hopefully we'll have one or two more dumps of snow before we leave here in 3 weeks. Look at the photos, only 7 days apart, of Anne and Klaus arriving and leaving.
Unfortunately Anne had a fall while getting off a chair lift on ...

kids passed their test and got their new pin with the level they graduated
