She takes baby steps along the trail, carefully gliding forward, one foot at a time. Without fear, she inhales winter's crispclean air and strives to keep her balance. That was then. Now , at 3 1/2- years-old, she finds her stride on pristine, snow white slopes, determined to cross each area with ease. Inhaling and exhaling, she explores the wonders of winter life with delight.
She breathes in
Winter's crispclean air.

I turn my Slice of Life thoughts over to Two Writing Teachers
in gratitude for the sacred space they have established
for a caring community of writers.
Carol, such great possibilities await her. She is all set to take on the slopes and life with poise and confidence.ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining me here this morning, Bob. Because I had an important doctor's appointment in NYC yesterday afternoon, I had to slice late in the evening. The pressure to get everything done for our move to Virginia is weighing heavily on us this month. Perhaps, these thoughts will be a future slice. Have a great day. We may have snow again.Delete
This is so cute. I didn't even know they made skis for such little kids.ReplyDelete
The skis are so tiny-adorable.Delete
I did not expect a tot on skis from your teaser; the surprise is delightful! I didn't get my first real taste of snow until my teens, so I'm a mite jealous. What a lifetime of exploration she has ahead!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Chris, for stopping by. Unfortunately, I did not get on skis until grad school and then a young ski patrolman took a jump and landed on my leg. I broke it of course and was in a hospital away from my early teaching career. Needless to say, I could never ski again. When my granddaughter goes skiing, I will enjoy nature by walking.Delete
She's so brave! I never had the guts to ski. After my foot injury in 2019, I doubt I ever will. Therefore, please keep sharing pictures of your tiny skiier. She's adorable!ReplyDelete
Thanks for checking out my little one who is quite the little athlete. Her baby sister hopefully will look like this next winter when she can walk on her own. I hope your foot is mending.Delete
Love this, Carol! The images in your words and the pictures of your granddaughter. Lovely!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Elisa, for commenting. I appreciate your lovely thought.Delete
She is adorable! So great to teach her to love winter at a young age. Love your pics and poem. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Are you making her carry the family's baggage? sure looks like that in the bottom photo :-)ReplyDelete
