January 20th, 2015 - Argentiere, France - Day 156

Lea’s POV

This morning I woke up to the strangest sounds, I heard a bunch of “I thinks” coming from my mom, then I fell back asleep just to hear things falling on the ground and the coffee maker going off. By then both my brother and I were awake, but decided not to acknowledge it. The third time I woke up to my brother ruffling around a paper and reading, then I was right back asleep. After Peter went out of our room I decided I had to get up, I rolled around so much in my bed that I looked like a crazy cat lady, I walked into the kitchen and started to make my famous hot chocolate.

Then I heard that we were going to have a conversation about what the next 18 or so days we had here were going to be like. So I grabbed my hot coco and sat down at the dinner table.  We started talking about how two things are essential #1 School #2 Workout. I didn't like the second one, I haven't been amazing at working out and frankly I hate it. I mean I am very good at my kind of workout, which requires me getting up and walking to the kitchen to get food, but the kind of workout they were talking about was different. Then we talked about how we had to go mostly everyday. After the longest debate ever, we moved on, talked more and more, then I asked If I had to workout that day, I didn't like the answer. I got upset and said that I was not going, then my parents said there would be a consequence, and I knew what it was going to be. I knew that If I said I would go then I would not be very happy because I would lose talking to my friends for awhile, so I chose to go with them.

After taking a break for awhile I apologized and everything was back to normal. Then after the tiniest bit of work I challenged my brother to a game of street fighter (our favorite game) he obviously accepted and after a grueling 30 mins I beat him, and I have to say he was a very good sport about it.

Then after a good lunch we decided it was time to get ready to go skiing, we had decided that I was going to go with dada for the first half and then I would ski with mama for the rest of the time.  Dada and me started with a few problems but in the end had a lot of fun. Then mama and I skied  and also had a lot of fun. On our last run mama and I got on a chairlift with two other guys and started talking, but when It came time to get off the chairlift I had realized my ski was missing. I hobbled down and waited for someone to come up with my ski.  A couple minutes later someone came up holding my ski, he said “there you go, oh and nice ski". That made me smile. Then we headed back down the mountain, It was the weirdest thing, the snow in places was icy then in others had a lot of powder. In the end it wasn't a lot of fun going down, but that day I did have a lot of fun skiing.

When we got on the bus we thought it was a little too good to be true because we had a bus waiting for us and we had seats together, which is rare. Then someone tells us that we are on the wrong bus if we wanted to go to Argentiere. So we ran out and saw or actual bus PACKED full with people.

It was a struggle getting into the bus and even when we were in it I had my poles upside down which was dangerous, so a nice guy flipped them around for me. I think overall the people in Argentiere are very nice. We fell down a few times on the bus and bumped into a few people, then I asked mama “hey do you have the key?”.  Her face just fell. “Haha your joking, right??” I said. Then she promised she didn't have the key. When we got to the apartment we just sat there and talked about books. We also called the boys and thank god they were on a bus heading our way. When they got there we said “what took you so long?” it took them like 5 mins :-). After we got all of our ski gear off we went to work, then we ordered some pizzas for the three of us because mama was going to have soup that she made. We ate a very good pizza and then watched a very educational Newsroom that wrapped up our great day.
