This was HER day. She was determined to master getting up on one ski. She has tried before, but not with THIS ski. It's a beauty, purchased late last year. It really makes a big difference. I wish I had it when I was learning. She got up on her third attempt. Go Stevie! It was fun to see her smile when she got up. I got a few turns on one ski and then we spent the rest of the time swimming at the sand bar. It's always a fantastic day on the lake!!!
