This past summer you might remember me writing about our fun annual Ditto family reunion. The past several years we have enjoyed the water fun at Lake Cavanaugh. Anyway, today we had parent/teacher conferences for the three older kids. Each of them is doing wonderfully and the teachers had lots of good things to share.
When we met with Alex's teacher she was expressing how much she enjoys his writing. She shared the following piece with us that Alex wrote at the beginning of the school year. I thought it was too cute to not share. For those of you that know the Ditto family there is much joy (and pressure) to being named among the talented waterskiers. Personally I haven't skied for years--it takes a lot for me to want to dip myself in cold water.
If you click on the following you can feel Alex's joy, fear, and triumphant over his first experience waterskiing. I can just hear his grandpa cheering him on!
