Thanks Rachel, the Yukon an amazing place to raise our kids, so many opportunities.
Hi Brian, as we don't have tv, i don't know what turned Alexander to snowboarding at a young age, i did drop him accidently in the snow a few times. first time at 5 months of age, i always say, that did it. Have fun raising a dare devil son!
Galen, i will join again, 55 keeps me to the point. Thanks for hosting it

Congratulations to Alexander and his proud Mom and Dad! Fantastic! Greetings from steamy Australia. We're finally getting settled back and even got internet yesterday so hopefully I'll make a new blog comment soon. So much fun being able to follow your antics on your blog Jozien. Keep up the good work!
Love Bella
