Yesterday, our little family took off on a cross country skiing adventure. With me being pregnant and Elias riding on Tony’s back, it was a very cautious trip, but still a lovely outing. Elias did great and Tony could even hear him laughing as he caught speed on a hill.
There is something so beautiful about cross country skiing. You have time to take in the scenery, you are relaxed, and there is a thrill in every hill you bomb down. Certainly a lifetime sport for us.
When I’m skiing, I catch myself thinking of Jan Brett’s Trouble with Trolls–a darling children’s story about a Scandinavian girl, her dog, some trolls, and cross country skis. Check it out!
