My in-laws have a term they use to describe some members of the family. The term is “irrational self-confidence” and Cameron posesses it. Richard took him skiing for the first time last week and when he came home he said to me “I’m going to be the best skiier in the whole entire town!”
But since I love skiing and have practically given it up the last few years, I do have high hopes that Cameron will love to ski and do reasonably well at it. It is our only hope for getting Eli to ski, if he sees how much Cameron enjoys it. We have no doubt that Miriam will love flying down the mountain at outrageous speeds, so perhaps that will also motivate Eli.
Since he is only five Cameron was able to get a season pass for free. He shows it to anyone interested with great pride. We’ll see how his confidence is when he gets off the bunny hill. But he is pretty cute with his little skis and his big smile.
