This was all the way back in October and I look at it now thinking...wow, there's no snow!!! Crazy! I got the kids some skis at a garage sale and they both took to it right away. This was the perfect time to do it, the ground was a little crunchy, yet slick and easy for the kids to get a feel on how to do it.
Cici on the other hand is so fickle about her circumstances and if she's not in the right mood or conditions she gives up and says she's done. Hopefully with time and age, and practice she'll learn to love it...because let's be honest, we are in Alaska and winter is quite long haha.
