Parental Writes #14 – Summertime Success!


#14 – Summertime Success!!
A lovely cabin weekend was capped by Duncan getting up on skis for an extended time. Yay!


There was one more run after this that was much longer but I was in the water helping him get up, Suzanne was swimming to shore because she was helping him earlier (and there was no way she was swimming out to him after this run) so it was just his Grandpa and his friend in the boat.


Needless to say, he was super happy and wants to keep doing it. We’ll keep working on that form – more standing, less squatting!

Before you know it…


I never could get the hang of slalom. Tried. A lot. Suzanne, however, learned on one ski so that’s the only way she knows how to do it. Jealous.

Two skis were no problem, although I probably looked like this.


This summer has gone by WAY too fast!
