Mister Simon and Ms. Martha School of Watersports...

We are very fortunate to have Simon and Martha as neighbors. They have a beautiful ski boat and they love to teach the neighborhood children how to ski and wakeboard. Simon also helped Zachary lose his fear of the water when he was a small boy.


Tyler decided that he wanted to learn how to ski, so this morning Simon invited him out for a lesson. Here is Ty all decked out with Mr. Simon.


Bless her heart, Martha got into the water with Tyler to coach him on how to get up on two skis.

Hit it!

He can get up which is great for a first timer!




Zach got a new lifejacket and wakeboard this year, so he and Simon had to take it out for a test run!

That is what summer is all about. Some of my fondest memories are of waterskiing on our lake. We are negotiating on a boat right now so hopefully I can start making memories for my boys. I Love Summer!!!!

that brings back memories....well not exactly, as I was being towed underwater submarine style. I learned there is a long delay between when you decide to let go of the rope and when your brain has sent the appropriate message to the limbs to do so. That is how Faithful Man and I met... He tried to drown me, I tried to impress him.
Those shots are amazing and make it look easy.

I wonder if Mister Simon would teach me how to ski? What a great time. I did try to ski once and it hurt. Water in wrong places....

Very cool. Our lake (the incomparable Crystal Lake in Benzie County) is still too cold to get in without a wetsuit!
