Winter Sports…I think
Coach teaches skiing at the
mountain big hill near our house in the winters, and Uncle Matt was on his high school AND college ski teams. Mommy was always more of a sit-near-the-fire-and-sip-hot-chocolate person than a real skier, but I? watch ski jumping and ski racing on t.v. and plan on winning Olympic Gold someday – and I’ll totally let Coach wear my medal.
I’m totally off to a great start, too. Coach got me SKIS for Christmas. They strap over my regular snow boots, AND they came with poles. (Seriously? Poles? For a toddler?) I took them for a test run on the living room floor, but then I fell, which I did not love – and I haven’t tried them outside yet.
*Then,* it snowed a lot around here… and kept snowing – so Daddy decided I needed a sled. He and Mommy and Aunt Angela have all taken turns pulling me up and down the hallway, but this is another item that hasn’t seen snow yet.
Finally, some of Mommy’s former students were talking about meeting up for ice skating, and I *definitely* don’t want to miss that, so Mommy used part of a gift card that Uncle Matt gave us to buy ice skates… and a helmet and elbow and knee pads to go with them.
So I am PREPARED to play in the snow, just in case it ever warms up enough to go out and play in it!
