NK skis (Click on link to open picture)
If only we were all still up to skiing again!
Here’s Niilo skiing across the driveway some 30+ years ago.
Now although there is currently enough snow the next generation very rarely skis. Though most did toboggan down the pasture when those who had moved away were back visiting last spring.
All 2nd=generation Koponens also got lots of exercise tromping around the homestead this fall when gathered again. Mom joined for picnics via automobile; We hope Dad could see it in his mind’s eye when we told him how lovely the homestead still is.
