One thing Mark and I have always enjoyed doing together is snow skiing. We’ve gone by ourselves, with groups of friends, taken youth groups and gone with another family. This week, we took our boys and a friend of our oldest. It was the best time! Since we put Caleb on skis at the age of three (what were we thinking?), we’ve always had one that wasn’t old enough to ski with us. Sometimes we took Grandma or a babysitter to watch the non-skier. Then that child moved into ski school or Mark would spend hours with that boy on a leash with the tips of the skis hooked together. Bless Mark for always having a good and willing attitude!
Our youngest was very against ski school this year, assuring us he’d beat us down the mountain. He did and more than once! I don’t know how many times I’ve looked forward to having all the boys old enough to ski with us and this year it happened.
We had a great time together. The boys are growing up too quickly, but this is a fun age to share in these memories!
