Amazing Nephews at Play

I'm a proud auntie... amazed by the talent of my young nephews. Check it out.

First is Kieth, who is 4 years old. He started water skiing at 3. Apparently, when you start at this age, the rope is attached to the ski, and they use a boat with a smaller engine. Well, this summer I got to watch him from the board. He has graduated to skiing with a bigger boat (the same one his mom and Aunt Heidi use), and the rope is attached to the boat, which is much harder. Here he is a few weeks ago with my sister in the water behind him.

Next is Kyle, a junior taiko master at age 2 1/2 years old. He recently went to Taiko Jam and knew a few of the pieces from watching the TAIKOPROJECT (re)generation DVD over and over and over. Why oh why don't they have taiko for tots? I think at the Taiko Conference, the minimum age for the kids workshop was 4. Here he is, legs bent, bachi's flying, and everything!

Very impressive. It's great that their parents are providing them with these opportunities.
