A year ago, coaxing my youngest to jump off the side of the boat was a lesson in frustration. Even jumping into his mom or dad's arms took bribery. My, how a year changes things. He's ready to go even if mom and dad aren't yet in the water. Another interesting thing is as he watched skier's and tubers go by, he commented how he wanted to do that. I understand the difference of seeing someone do something and then later getting the gumption to try it, but it might be time to break out the starter skis with this one.
