Hey everyone, this is Sam again. I hope everyone is having a good day. This week we were able to see at least a small amount of snow fall in Saijo. I was pretty excited because by this time of year my home has a ton of snow. I think I am going to miss doing winter things in the snow. This year I don`t think I`ll be able to enjoy skiing or snow shoeing. I haven`t done it in years, but I also used to make snow forts for snow ball fights with my brother and my friends. Its usually a fun activity I do with my family and relatives. At least I`ll still be able to drink hot chocolate if I need something to get me into the Christmas spirit. If I am lucky I`ll also be able to see more snow as we get closer to new years. How about everyone else? do you guys ever enjoy winter sports? Maybe on a vacation or there is some spot I don`t know about where you can ski.
