Theme for July: Uniqueness
“Hit it,” Emma, the youngest and last of the third generation to learn to water ski gave her mom the signal to go. The boat surged forward, an older cousin steadying Emma released her to the boat’s tug and Emma popped out of the water. She bobbed up and down, gained her balance and dutifully stayed behind the boat in the water that looked like root beer. All three generations represented at my Mom’s cabin learned to ski from another family member. Each one that learned passed the gained knowledge and experience on to another.
Parenting Tip: Help your child discover his gifts and skills so he can pass along his special talent to another.
