Water Skiing 30:00 [2]

This was an interesting day for me. We had a slow morning. We went out on a trip in the motor boat to go skiing. It was a COMPLETELY emply lake not a boat in sight. We've decided this was a perfect day to try SLALOM SKIING. I hopped out of the boat to try it out. My dad decided it was best that I would get pulled out of the water with one ski on, so I tried it. It was very hard to drag my foot in the water while trying to hold my balance to get up. It seemed that though how many times I tried it, I felt that it always ended up the same, in about equal amount of time, I fell. EVERY TIME. It got a little frustrating. So, my mom wanted to experiment something that that might improve my progess. Even though dad didn't like the idea, mom thought that maybe I should try getting up on two skiis ( that I already knew how to do ) and drop one ski in the water whole I'm up. So I tried it the first time, AND IT WORKED! It was amazing, It was really cool to get the feeling of being up on one ski , I LOVED IT! But dad got tired of going back to fetch the dropped ski so I only got to try it twice. My brother gave it a try and he got it too! And so did my mom! My dad tried it but he had some bad knee pain which gave him second thoughts. So after our BIG success we headed home to report our GREAT NEWS to Grandpa.
Tommorow is going to be a GREAT day!
