Fed up with all of the obstacles found in daily life, I marked a day on the calendar and declared it the day I take my daughter to water. To ease her into the sport, I decided to take her out on a canoe as her first paddle. Enough stability to keep her at ease while maintaining ever so slight rocker to give her a little rush from time to time. To make the trip even more exciting, we After sharing the news with her about my plans, she was so excited for this day to come. For nearly two weeks long, each day was countdown as we approached what she called "Canoe Day". As we finally made it to the day, you can see how hard it was for her to contain the excitement. She couldn't wait any longer!
