Lara's Skiing Progresses

Today was Lara's second of three Stage Two lessons, and they progressed farther up the beginner's slope, making it as far as three-quarters of the way to the top. The kids are supposed to be trying to achieve and maintain a good snowplough, and most of the time Lara succeeded, but not always, but I think that's about par for the course. She ought be to be going from the top of the beginner's slope next week, and assuming she survives that, without falling all the time, and is able to hold a decent snowplough, she should be OK to start Stage Three the week after. Those three lessons are still on the beginner's slope, but if she passes that stage, then Stage Four starts to introduce them to the main slope, and when she reaches that point, I might just explode with pride!
