On Monday, we took the girls skiing. Actually, we took them to ski school while we did a little bit of skiing ourselves. Kara rarely shows any ounce of fear or nerves, but Nolan and I both thought she seemed pretty quiet and nervous about going skiing. She was very excited about it, but possibly a tad bit reluctant at the same time. Who can blame her? Coming from a place with palm trees and relatively warm winters, this was about as foreign to her as we could get. As Nolan and I skiied, we would stop over frequently and check on the girls' progress. Mia just couldn't stop giggling long enough to focus on controlling herself as she went downhill. She actually regressed from last year, in my opinion, but she was still so much fun to watch. I wasn't quick enough to catch the fast action of Leila barreling down the slopes and taking out a little kid at the bottom. (Fortunately, the kid was ok.) She did much better later in the lesson. And by the end, Kara mastered the snowplow and was going down the hill with ease.
"Yes, we're ready to ski!!!"
This scared-of-heights mama was a nervous wreck last year when Leila rode the chair lift for the first time. For some reason, I didn't feel nervous this time around. Hooray!
See ya' later snow trails. Be back soon.
After today's post, I need to take a few days off of the computer. I hope to be back later next week. All is well, just super busy and need to take some time off.
