Water Skiing 30:00 [3]

Today was a special day today was the day I finally learned how to slalom ski! I'd tried to get up bright and early and get out on the boat quickly. Once we were out, we picked up gas and headed straight to the island. Dad changed his mind and let us go up on two skiies and drop one. It actually worked! The first two runs I worked on trying to balance wtih dragging one foot then sliding it in the foot slot. the third tme, I GOT IT! I balanced perfectly and slid my foot in the slot and actually stayed up for a LONG time! Dad wsa VERY inpressed. I also went over the wake a few times. IT WAS AWESOME! From this point, I might even be able to do rooster tails like mommy by the end of the week!!

Water Skiing 20:00 [2]

Today was an interesting day for water skiing. The lake was dead empty and all of my family went together. I went first. After our HUGE discovery yesterday we were all eager to get out there. Well I had one pretty long 2-ski run and then dad convinced me to try and get up on 1 ski, it took up a lot of time, but, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! ALthough it doesn't seem like I am improving, inside, I really am. That got a little frustrating, so I got back up to the 2-ski-drop. On that run, I think I got a little more comfortable with going over the wake. The only bad thing is that our moods weren't exactly happy. People got a little moody this run, maybe I think it is because this might be a little frustrating as I mentioned. But we promised tomorrow will be better. We can't wait till we get in the hang of starting on one ski, WE'LL BE FLYING!!!!!
