Last Saturday Rinar took Raef, Zach, and Eli up to Sky Tavern to ski for the very first time. I stayed home with the little ones. It was a trying experience for everyone, except Eli. I think they got somewhat frustrated. But they stuck with it and still had a good time.
It was even Rinar's first time and it didn't come so naturally to him either. But in the end, I think he went up the ski lift and had a successful run down the hill. Raef went up pretty high as well and just flew down the hill. Luckily he is still in one piece.
The winter has still been a bummer, overall. They were supposed to ski this past Saturday but it got canceled because it snowed and they didn't have the parking lot cleared. Hopefully the snow will stay for a few more weeks and doesn't melt away before they really get the hang of it.
I am just grateful they have had the opportunity to give it a try.
