My husband went up to Sovereign with our son Carter this weekend for a Nordic camp. When the boys left for the weekend, Carter was so excited! He was looking forward to a weekend filled with skate and classic skiing, ping pong, snowball fights, games and a social wonderland with his buddies. Only what he didn't realize is how the first time on the skis and doing 1.5 full days of skiing and activities/training... was going to hurt! I got a phone call Sunday morning from Carter. He sounded discouraged, tired and unsure if he could handle the ski race that was ahead of him that morning. He told me how much his shoulders hurt and how he didn't get any sleep and before you know it was talking himself into a tivy. So I immediately implemented 'Pep Talk 101' and talked him back up! Within 1min we had an excited, pumped up and ready to roll boy back in the game!

I am so grateful for that phone call. I was so proud of Carter and happy to get in a such great workout! And by the time Carter got home, he forgot how tired he was and just wanted to help make gingerbread man and homemade tree ornaments!
