Trip Reports

 

Robyn stood outside for 7 hours at a concert!

 

Amandine went ice-climbing for the first time and also learned a new game – Canoe polo. It is a very bloodthirsty sport, not for the weak of heart.

 

Evalyn tried to skate on the road at the exec retreat somewhat successfully!  

 

Emma checked out a lake near the house. The group snowshoed one by one on the lake. Very smart. They ran as the ice started to creak!

 

Alex was in Greece near Mount Olympus. Zeus was not there. He forgot to check Zeus’ office hours.
