Jon and the girls decided it was the day for them to ski.
Some onshore practice was the first step.
A long pep-talk
Backyard ski school was truly put to the test. Our first strategy with Little J was, both parents in the water, supporting child.
Okay, Hit it!
Oops. Miserable failure. I feared Little J might never get in the water again.
She was done for the day.
Second strategy with Little A, Nana dragging in water, cheering, Mama in the boat, holding front of skis, Daddy in boat, holding Little A up! She skied!
Props for the grandma who drug all around the lake for the sake of two-year-olds learning how to ski!
We waited a few days to broach the subject again and had some practice with the “boat” being Uncle Jeffy.
Next try with Little J…
And she skied!
Tomorrow, we are teaching them barefooting.
