Start of Something Finnish

Today the kids and I started my Minnesota Youth Ski League (MYSL) Team. MYSL mission states, "The Minnesota Youth Ski League (MYSL) is a club-based organization that offers youth and their families the opportunity to learn, develop skills and enjoy cross-country skiing together."

The other dads and I got the kids fitted with skis, taught them how to put on their own gear, how to fall down how to get up and other ski related skills. We had a great time, but didn't make it onto the snow because of the pouring rain.

I'm planning to take Claire and Harris out for a first ski with dad day tomorrow, the hell with the rain. I hope we can have as much winter fun together on skis as we do biking together in the summer.
