We hit the slopes Monday, January 14 for the first time this season. I coordinate our homeschool co-op's ski program and we will be going 6 times this year unless we have sickness or blizzard conditions.
This was Isaac and Abby's 5th time on skis and Miriam's first. Isaac and Abby were able to go on a lift for the first time. They were so excited. I was a little nervous. The instructor was with them and she said they were ready so I trusted her judgement and they did great!!!
My main concern with Miriam was whether she would like it or not. Although she was down as much as she was up, she always had a smile and seemed to like it. She was pretty tired after only 1 1/2 hrs. We only stayed for a couple of hours and that was probably all she could do (this time).
I was fortunate to have my pastor's wife, Kathy, watch Levi and he did wonderful for her. It was his first time being away from his family members so it was good to know that didn't freak him out.
