But, I haven't skied for a fair number of years. The skis I own are now older than many of the ski hill employees, including some of the more experienced instructors. I feared next time out I would feel as decrepit as my skis look. Consequently, even though Meaghan has repeatedly asked to ski for over two years, I hesitated getting out with her and Eamon on my own. Now, Eamon is old enough for ski lessons. I signed them up for a two day lesson earlier this week.
I'm pleased to report that we headed to the hill with two kids that had never been on skis before, and we came home with skiers!
Admittedly, I will breathe easier once Eamon stops saying: "That's just for my lesson," every time I ask him to do something he learned in his lesson.
