Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
-Victor Kiam

I caught this series of photos of my four-year-old doing some backyard skiing.  This guy is a trooper, he just keeps moving forward!

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
-Robin Williams

Not exactly what you call spring here in Minnesota yet, but we still had a party.  After 2 days of skiing with hubby, we had my sister bring the kids to join us at the hill.  It was such a fun day watching them learn to ski!  It is something I have wanted to do with the kids for a long time.  I'm so glad we got to do it.

Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean you shouldn't try it.
-Howard Schultz

Ya, I know this isn't the first time this has been done.  Like people shovel snow off the tramp all the time in anticipation of warm weather coming.  Seriously, the tramp was weighed down in snow before this 6 year old decided it was time for a jump.  I saw him muscling a HUGE mound off onto the ground and grabbed my camera too late.  He was determined to do it, and not too long later the tramp was completely dry!  It has occupied much of their time since.  :)

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
-C.S. Lewis

I have been dreaming about going downhill skiing again.  The last time was probably 7 or 8 years ago, man time flies!  This year my dream is coming true.  Next week, hubby and I are going to hit the slopes in north eastern Minnesota.  I'm sure the mountains here don't quite compare to Colorado, where we were skiing last time, but I know it is going to be fun none the less.  My next dream is to take the kids some day.  Saturday proved to be a perfect day for the kids to get a small feel of it.  We have this perfect little hill right in our back yard for them {and mom} to get a little speed on their cross country skis.  The snow temperature was perfect as well, and you could get a nice wind blowing in your hair as your made a run down!  Ahh......can't wait til next week! {Hopefully I am not too old for this!!}

"Promise me you'll always remember. You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
Christopher Robin to Pooh

My poor baby loves is getting teeth.  She has been unbearable for the last few days and won't let me get near her mouth.  This morning I was able to quickly pry her top lip back and found swollen purple gums with not 1, not 2 or 3 but 4 new teeth trying to make their way through.  No wonder why she is so miserable!!  This mama sat in the recliner with her for 2 hours during the night, after giving her ibuprofen, while she tried to get comfortable again.  Here is one of her rare smiles from the last week.
