Ski Jumping

The end of the day can get a little hectic around here. Gilly and Simon are often tired by then, but paradoxically, are wired and bouncing off the walls (literally). In the interest of maintaining sanity and keeping the kids out of the kitchen while dinner was being prepared, I played a movie to distract them. I decided to mix it up a little, so instead of Sesame Street or Angelina Ballerina, tonight's pre-dinner entertainment was a ski movie, "Anomaly" by Teton Gravity Research.

It's chock full of skiers and snowboarders jumping off cliffs, riding steep and deep slopes, and various on-snow mayhem all over the world. Not surprisingly, Gilly the wild-child LOVED it. She started jumping off the coffee table, practicing her cliff jumps . . .

Hello readers (all three of you . . .),

Due to some unpleasant comments that were left on an old post, I have had to disable anonymous comments (EDIT: I have re-enabled anonymous comments, but I will continue to moderate comments. -Adam). I have also enabled comment moderation, which means I'll have to approve a comment before it is visible on the blog.

Don't worry, I will probably approve every comment I receive, unless you're trying to sell Viagra, or you claim to be a former Nigerian prince who needs assistance reclaiming his fortune. Note: if the last one doesn't make sense, read about "419 Scammers" (click).


The Management


The weather is warming up! Gilly and I went to the Dartmouth Skiway yesterday to do a little Spring skiing. She continues to make progress, but still prefers to "go fast." We're in trouble.

Simon still adores his baby sister. I wonder if this will change once she starts swiping his toys . . .

Basket Train

I wasn't around for this one, so I have no idea how Simon managed to fit in the basket. It looks like he might be standing in a hole, but I assure you, there are no holes in our floor :)
