Esther Skis at Three

Someone got to go skiing last week!

We’ve never taken a child under the age of 6 or 7 to the slopes. However, youngest children occasionally find themselves at an advantage. Christina had to wait until she was 9 to get a puppy. Esther thinks our yorkie, Tanner, is her big brother. Anna begged to ski until she was seven. Esther got to try out the bunny slope last week just two months after turning three. She also was born into a home equipped with two dollhouses, 6 bitty babies, a decade of dance costumes for dress-ups and a Playmobil castle. I remember when Anna was three thinking, “We really need some girl toys.” That was 12 years and 4 daughters and a bazillion birthday parties ago. Anyway… Daniel and I are guilty of “not being fair.” Esther gets to ski at three.

And she did GREAT!

Because this preschool-ski thing was new to us, we had no idea how she’d do. We were so surprised that after a few runs, she wanted to try it “all by myself!!” I was pleased to capture her first run down where Daniel “lets her go.”

Way to go, Esther! 🙂

    How sweet! I’ve never been skiing. I hate being cold. But I’m open to letting my kids go when someone else cares enough to take them. LOL
