           I had the privilege of spending my New Year's at a beautiful ski resort with good friends, good food, and lots of fun in the snow. As college progresses and everyone's lives get busier, Christmas and New Years seem to be the only times I really get to spend quality time with old friends. All holed up in a cabin at the base of mountain, after a long day on the mountain, with a cup of hot cocoa, and a pack of cards seemed to be the perfect recipe for catching up and having a great time. Plus, a fun night at the local pub and incredible food eaten at the village restaurants. My winter break is slowly coming to an end and I although part of me is ready to get back into the groove of things, another part of me never wants this time to end, until next year I suppose.

         Finally some formal pictures of my Nica family. Goodness. I don't know what to say except I feel so close to my family. I am so comfortable in my house. My brothers feel like my brothers. I fight and tease my little brother and he annoys me and teases me back. My mom is like my Nicaraguan mom. She takes care of me and reminds me to do things and acts like a mom to me. I didn't get a picture of the entire family (I am missing my older sister Eveling, and my dad Douglas), but hopefully I'll get one of the whole family before I leave. All I can say is that I am going to be very, very sad to leave my family here.. My time here is slipping away. I can feel the tears coming. My last day is going to a hectic, tear filled day.
