Jesse skiing



And go again! Check out the grin he’s giving me over his daddy’s shoulder!

We left town on Saturday with a solemn promise to Jesse’s grandpa that we would take a video of his first time on the slopes and post it on the blog by Monday. So, here you go!
He loved every minute of his first skiing experience – big smiles the whole time. We only spent about 5 min. out on the hill – just enough to give him a positive experience. And he definetaly liked it – enough to motivate him to learn the sign for “skiing”. When we watched the video this morning on the computer, he grinned and giggled, and then signed “skiing”. One smart boy, I tell you!
So, we are back home just long enough for me to unpack, do laundry, and pack up again – Jesse and I will be joining my dad and mom on a quick trip out to Michigan this week to visit my grandmother who is recovering from her latest stroke. I am thankful that I have an opportunity to visit her, and introduce her to Jesse. Please pray for safe travel, and grace for the 17 month old during the long car ride! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you look a little further down in the blog you'll see that they've taught Jesse to sign so that he would have a way of communicating his wants and desires even before he could speak since children can learn signs earlier than they learn speach. Sounds pretty clever and sensible to me ๐Ÿ˜€
