The girls bumping it up at Copper Nov 13-14th 2010

post #1 of 14

My 5 and 8 year olds having fun at Copper on our first weekend of the 2010 season.

 

 

 

 

 

3 weeks later and we have almost completely gotten rid of the remaining power plow on the 5 year old.  Of course not dragging her down everything and anything on the mountain would get rid of it completely but where's the fun in thateek.gif

That is great.  I remember skiing the bumps with my daughter when she was around 9-12.  She was like a waterbug effortlessly linking turns.  I on the other hand...

They will thank you for the rest of their lives!  My parents didn't take me skiing, I started in my 30's.

We are really looking forward to it!!  

 

She made a big step up this last week when she skied 8 straight full days.  By the end of the week, she was really moving away from a stem christie start to her turns.   Well....except for when she wanted to follow her sister down Looking Glass through the week old powder and crudcool.gif

 

 

You may not feel so lucky when she has one of her....uhh....temper issueshissyfit.gif

 

Just remember when she does...it was inherited from her mothers side of the family....not minewink.gif

I started at 24 and I'll never forgive my parents for not starting me as a kid. 

 

The beatings, the groundings, the slave labor I can forgive.....but not taking me skiing.......for that they can rotwink.gif

 Ahahahaha, I'll remember you said that.  Really though, at 5, temper issues are expected and normal.  I've seen some doozies both on the angry side and the melt down tears side.  We'll get through them, we always do.

They look GREAT.  By the way, do they have a picture of Uga hanging in their rooms?  My baby is at UGA right now.

Oh good cause you are likely to get more of the former and some of the later for the 1st week but then she turns 6 on the 10th and all that stuff just goes away then right....rolleyes.gif

No but they do have plenty of UGA gear around the house and they get to listen to their dad get excited (or mad this year) in the fall!!  

 

Is she racing on the UGA cycling team?

My younger daughter (still in HS) is the bike racer.  My older daughter is my ski partner.  We will be out between Christmas and New Years.  Would love to run into you and the family.

the kids look great..... they'll only get better.  hopefully, some day, when they become "lovely" teenagers, thinking that dads isn't cool anymore, you'll

take em down the bumps and teach them "what for" thats the way to beat kids up. they will also forgive you for it

Joanne, another of our coaches (who may be Olivia's) told her then 5 year old stepson that he could only turn 6 if he didn't throw tantrums.  wink.gif
