My Father-in-Law, is a really fantastic skier, and he has the patience of Job. So When my boys turned 3 (and were potty trained) Mark started taking them skiing with him. He works at our church and has Monday’s off, so he makes a point to take the boys up to the mountain several times over the course of the ski season. He packs a lunch, grabs the skis, buckles them in, and away they go. Nothing like a little male bonding on the chair lifts! Did I mention that my Father-in-Law has endless patience?
Oh and the best part about the Monday skiing, is that I have an entire day of childless (except for the sweet-pea baby) bliss. As you with multiple children know, when you are down a couple of kids, the entire day is simply easier. Oh, the ease of a one-kid day!
