Sophia's ski lessons

We had such a great ski week, and we were so proud of Sophia - she went to ski school every day (Troy & I only went for 3 days and then we skied together the rest of the week). She even got a medal for her 4th place in the ski race at the end of the week.

We were a little concerned about how she was going to take to skiing... Sophia has such an amazingly strong personality, but likes to do things perfectly on the first go round. It is often frustrating for her, and for her parents, when she actually has to take the time to learn... Troy & I were a little frustrated with her ski school during the week. We felt they didn't have enough teachers for the kids that were ready to move on, but it worked out well for Sophia. She was able to really perfect her time on the magic carpet, and after the races on Friday she was more than willing to go on the rope tow, and then the big mountain with her parents. Nana & Alexandra were watching, and cheering her on, from down below!

We were also very fortunate that she had some friends from school in her ski class, so she was very comfortable with going to ski lessons.

The awars ceremony was very impressive, they even had a medal stand for the top 3!!
