Skiing Will

For celebration of Presidents Day, the Springville Emmetts went skiing at Solitude. It was four year old Will's first time on skis. He is a natural. I started out skiing backwards in front of him, but quickly realized that he could do it on his own. He mastered pizza and french fires right off. I spent all day tailing him down the hill. At the bottom he always wanted to go up again. By the end of the day (about 12 runs on Main Street) he was even turning with ease. At one point Sarah and Joel came over to join us. What a delight watching three kids heading down hill and having fun together. Some days life is very good.
