A note about the weather: It's -5 outside right now and we're in the middle of a blizzard. That means that it's really cold and snow is blowing everywhere.
When it was warmer (in the 20's) we took the kids skiing for the first time. My knees are bad, so I just took pictures. They did pretty well (the boys and M, I mean). Here are some highlights:
The boys practiced "skateboarding" on one ski to get the feel of the ski before putting on two skis.
M and the boys pose proudly on the slopes.
M holds T in between his legs while going up the tow rope. They have just gotten off the rope in this picture. T can do it all by himself now!
T celebrates his victory over the slopes.
