ex machina

the eric update - day 953: ski jumping!

today odin saw his very first ski jumping continental cup competition at the snowflake ski club in neaby westby wisconsin.

the ski club has a 118 meter olympic sized hill which can launch jumpers up to 140 meters ( 459 feet ), which you can imagine is super exciting for both adults and two-and-half year olds!

see all those steps up the left side of the hill? we walked up. every. single. one. of. them. phew!

after the competition, as we slowly made our way down the stairs they shot off a cannon 3 times which caught odin by surprise and explains why if you were ask odin about the ski jump, he'll first tell you about the "cannin" :-)

you can click on each image for a brief description.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
