Kailey Koehler: Not So White of a Christmas

Although sitting in the car for 18 hours isn’t on top of my “top list of things to do”, skiing in florida over my winter break is. I like spending time with my family, but 18 hours in the car isn’t as fun as it sounds. We try to keep ourselves busy by watching movies, waving to all the cars we pass by, and counting how many Cracker Barrel breakfast places we pass (one year we counted 114, but we did lose count a few times). Luckily, I am able to sleep most of the way while my dad drives. I have plenty of time to dream about sitting in the warm weather and skiing with all my friends.

For those 18 hours of driving I look forward to skiing down at WBC and spending Christmas in the warm Florida sun! This year I am training for the 2014 worlds in Australia! I look forward to skiing a lot and preparing myself to ski at worlds. I am also looking forward to going to the beach and spending time with the Ebbert Family. We have rented a house with them for the last 7 years over our winter break. We love playing games like ping pong, football, frisbee, and board games. Over christmas break we have so much fun with our barefoot family and I wouldn’t want to spend it any other way.
