It was Isaac's first time on the boat and he fell fast asleep. But, he also got to be a co-captain his on his first ride! He was in the bjorn while I pulled Franklin, Nora and Robbie on the tube. That is a new level of multi-tasking, I've never pulled skiers with a baby attached to me before!
My dad taught me when I was growing up that I could do anything a boy could do and insisted that I learn how to do things on my own. Being self sufficient is important to him. While I always loved to drive and was up for anything like that, there were things I didn't want to learn how to do...like changing a flat tire. But he taught me how to do that, check the oil, use jumper cables, drive a standard, drive a boat, pull skiers, water safety, hit a golf ball, paddle a canoe, and many other life lessons that I am grateful for. That knowledge has come in handy and provided many experiences that I wouldn't have had without it. It is something I am now proud of, and makes me feel capable as an adult, a woman, and as a mother. Thanks, dad!!
