Boarding Basics

JR finished up his snowboarding lessons and according to his teacher he can "turn and stop". He's just now starting to get the hang of it, so hopefully we can continue with some private lessons for him. I have two videos of him, but he is actually doing better than the videos show. I had the babies in the car with me, so this was the only chance I had to break away and film before I had to get back to them. (And yes, sitting in the car for an hour trying to entertain twins is super fun...) The videos are a bit dark since his lessons are at night, but you can still see him. You'll notice in the video that his hands look giant. That's because he has lost ALL of his gloves at school or on the bus, so he's wearing an adult size glove since all the kid snow gloves in Durango seem to be sold out...Guess all his friends have lost theirs too!

I LOVE the big gloves. He looks pretty cool, calm, and collected to me. Maw-Maw
