Snowboarding Circuit here we come....


For two years now my older kids have taken snowboarding. Jacob seemed to be a natural from the beginning. He quickly advanced through the lessons last year. Again this year he did the same. This year he also received the highest (coveted) lesson sticker..... "THE BLACK DIAMOND" He was so excited!! The black diamond allows you to snowboard on any hill in the resort. From there you learn techniques and earn black pins. He tried on the last lesson to earn one of the pins, but the instructor was not qualified to teach those lessons. Instead Jacob and his friend helped the instructor teach the class.
We wont get to go snowboarding today because it is raining and are expecting thunderstorms....

Way to go Jacob! It's really cool when you can teach the teacher!

He's found his calling. :)

That's so cool! We haven't had enough snow in the past 10 years combined to even be close to owning a snowboard!

Good job Jacob!! Maybe we'll see him in the winter olympics next time they roll around!

I always thought that looks like fun... even though it involves snow and cold weather! Congratulations!
