Great picture Sizzler. I have an Emily too. This is her on the wakeboard 2 weeks ago. She is now sporting a hot pink cast on her left arm ... . It will be awhile before we get to see this again.

Last summer our seven year old daughter had an interest in trying waterskiing, but the lake was a little too much for her.

Here she is at a "Ski Wee" public event put on at a swimming pool this April past. The Vancouver Waterski Club (of BC) puts this event on every spring. This was our first year attending. She had her first pull on kneeboard and waterskis all at an indoor pool with me as the boat! My daughter was so excited when she got home she had me put together a homemade ski rope and pull her around the house the rest of the afternoon!

Sorry about the poor picture quality but my Dad (Grandpa) was using the camera while I was being the boat. This was a really cool event for all three of us (Grandpa, dad (me), and daughter).

The set up was a double-ended tow rope (two ropes coupled together) feed through a pully mounted on a rack at the far end of the pool. The parents provided the horsepower by running down the edge of the pool on a long carpet toward the child being pulled at the opposite end of the pool. One parent could pull a kneeboard or wakeskate, but two were needed for children on skis. Once pulled the handle was passed from the "boat" to the next waiting child. My guess is about 25 children had about 10 pulls each inside of the two hour event.

Next year I plan to take both my three year old and Paige's three year old cousin as well!

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to comment on that. There is the answer = 25 minutes! Not our boat (ours is a couple thousand miles away), this one is one of the local ski school's boats. And personally, as it is run in salt water, I am happy to be using their's and not ours. Best part is it is 20 minutes from our house and waiting in the water when we get there. Any day out on the water (regardless of the boat) beats a day in the office in my mind - even better again if the family is along.

I'll agree with that 100%
