Year 2014 Olympic Skier?




















Look - his pacifier matches his ski jacket! What a sense of style! (He did give it to me just before he set off, lest you think this little athlete is actually skiing with a schnoo!). And - I did change his teddy bear mittens for ski mittens.

Getting ready to go down a long, gradual slope with DH.



Look at that form!








With a Happy Momma! He liked skiing, Yes, Yes, Yes!!! (I am so looking forward to years of skiing with him - hopefully - but once he gets good he will probably leave Momma in the snow dust) - and although he didn't want to go again today - he wants to go again tomorrow. Believe me - this is already a good sign!


He didn't complain one bit about falling either - he kept telling DH - "I'm OK, I'm OK", and he likes the sensation of skiing. He tells me - "I want to go FAST Momma".



In case your wondering - 2014 Winter Olympics might be in S. Korea, Russia or - practically in our very own backyard - Salzburg, Austria. Hummm... And NO - I am not some sports nut parent who will push my kid whether he likes it or not for the sake of being in a sport - I am just having a bit of fun here, so don't worry. But, I am thrilled that he loves skiing so much because I really think it is a fun sport!

What memories!!! Show him that picture when he's on the High School Ski team making team records when he's about 17....You may even be able to extort money from him to keep it out of the high school paper!!! I love this post. Merry Christmas.

Looks like everyone had a fun day. What a great family activity. I will watch for him on the slopes in the future skiing trials.

Lucky boy! I sure wish my parents would have taught me to ski when I was little. I tried to learn after I got married and it was a disaster!!!

What adorable pictures! He's precious!

I thought at first that the pacifier was some sort of breathing mask!

You'll also have to start him snowboarding and ice skating early, so he can decide which one he likes best. :)

excellent colour coordination with the pacifier and ski jacket! Isn't it wonderful when your children enjoy the same activities that you do! I am sure you will have years of skiing together ahead of you before the 2014 Olympics! :)

He looks so adorable and so ready to hit the slopes!

Have a wonderful Christmas Eveylyn! I never thought about it, but from things you've written about Little Boy - of course going fast downhill fits him to a tee! Have a wonderful weekend!
