Can't get enough!
Today I got up on ONE ski.  I've been dropping a ski for about a month but had never started on one so it was a big day for me.  Stevie?  She had fun playing around on two as she is very comfortable now.  I enjoyed watching her show off to all the people on the lake. of last night (after a 7 hour course and 60 question exam) I have my boating license.  It was a great day!

(we can never thank you enough Kara!!!)

 The girls were gone this past week and so it gave me the opportunity to spend some one on one with Kaleb.  We went SKIING!  It was his first time and after many tries, he DID IT!  It was so great seeing the look of JOY when he got up and STAYED up!
He was SO excited that he was waving at the camera.  LOVE IT!
 He was up for awhile before drifting outside the wake...
 And down he went.
 The wipe outs are my favorite to funny.
He was fine, I promise!
Kaleb's VICTORY pose!
(showing us how it's done...)
 Kara took him for a WILD SPIN after he was done skiing.  She told him there are "Handles" on the boat for a reason.  Kaleb felt he was 'too cool' to hold on....
 ...until he almost fell out of the boat.
 That got his heart pumping and he changed his mind about the handles.
 And then held on to anything he could at that point.
 It was FUNNY!
But he learned his lesson!!!
 And he walked away one happy boy!
Thanks again and again Kara for sharing your lake with us!
