Ski Bums

Sean loves to ski. He tells me about how he started at 22 months old, and was better than his parents in just a few years, and how he can't wait to get Aiden on skis. Well, this winter he's finally big enough, and last week we went out and got him itty bitty baby skis.

Even though it was super cold this weekend Sean and his dad got out there with him. From the story I heard, they got him strapped onto his skis and then let him go down the small hill in Sean's dad's yard all by himself. It didn't occur to them that perhaps a two year old who has never been on skis before might not appreciate being sent down a hill alone as his first experience of the sport.

However, they must know what they're doing because apparently once he calmed down he couldn't wait to go again, and he had a great time. Sean is thrilled that Aiden is willing to try skiing and now it seems it's up to me to learn!

Kiss and make up
