We Have a Snowboarder!

Elijah is the second one coming down the hill on his snowboard. The first kid is a buddy of his from his class. They both stayed after class and did a few more runs down the mountain together.


The weather was beautiful today! Sunshine and not too cold so it was enjoyable to stand outside and wait for Elijah to make it down the mountain.

During his class he wears the vest but took it off after class for his last few runs.

Watching the hill they'll be coming over.

Here they come!


And up they go again!

He's learned so much in just the few days he's been taking lessons.

We're so proud of him!

Next week Ethan and I have a skiing lesson together. Ethan kept saying he would rather doing skiing than snowboarding but was hesitant to try it until I offered to do it with him. Now I'M the nervous one! haha! I can see this going either going well or very badly!

Climbing the Walls

Ok, this should be the last Northern Ireland post! Next up Florida!

I had to put these photos up even though they aren't the best quality because Elijah said it was one of his favorite things that we did while we were there.

Geoff, Rachel, the boys, and I went one afternoon to this place in Belfast that has a ropes course and rock climbing walls. They boys had a blast! Elijah was really good at the rock climbing.

Meet Mooshroom

Did we tell you about the calf that was born on the farm while we were there in Northern Ireland?

Ethan wanted to name her Moo-shroom and she was soooo cute!
