Solon learns to ski...

Monday, July 23, 2012
Yes, gasp, you read that correctly....why shouldn't a 2 year old learn how to water ski?  I mean gosh he is arleady 2....if they make a contraption that can teach him, by golly we will get it and he will learn...and luckily for us he agreed and it was game on!

First things first, getting used to the jet ski looking contraption...it had the little feet holders just like skis on either side with a little ski rope to hold on to...
Next up a practice run with manual body power in the shallows of the lake...
Yep, that was a success and he was ready for more difficult terrain so although my heart is not ready for my boy to grow up....he wasn't waiting for it to be ready!
So off we went, Grandpa driving the jet ski...mom holding the other end of the rope and my "big" boy learning how to ski!  He went for a really long time an would have kept going but MY arms were getting sore...
He has a few years to practice with this trainer and a few more swimming lessons before we take him behind the boat but he is game for whatever Grandpa throws at him...I fear I might be surpassed by him and his water sports abilities by the time he is 5 :) He makes us so proud with his go get'em attitude...way to go buddy!
