2nd lesson...

The next day, the kids had a full day snowboarding lesson. While they were gone, I decided to try something new at the spa... a 80 minute pedicure with a hot stone foot massage... it was wonderful!

Anyway, when I went back to pick them up at 4:00, I did see progress!
Until Alex wiped out...
And what do you do when you wipe out and your little sister goes zooming by you? You do what any good brother would do....
.... you throw snow at her as she goes by!

Clara was actually doing quite well at this point...

But now she's down...
And Alex is back up...
They were doing well enough to try a green run, but no one else in their group was ready. Their fabulous instructor, Nate, told the kids that he would take just them down after the lesson was over. Here's what the end of that run looked like...

It was painful to watch! Nate must have the patience of a saint! They took FOREVER to come down the run. They fell so many times! But they had their first "real" run under their belts, and decided they were ready to go it alone the next day. But for right then, they were EXHAUSTED and were ready to go home! :-)
