Ice skating on the mountain

Or, Marion's first ski lesson.

For some reason she calls it ice skating. We don't know why. Anyway, she wanted to try it out and we figured, 'Why not?'

So off Marion and Brian went during our trip to Chateau d'Oex. Except her lesson was in Gstaad. Fancy schmancy.

She did really well! The instructor said she was coordinated, balanced, and athletic for being on skis for the first time.

Maybe all she needed was some skis for her to be graceful? God knows she isn't balanced or coordinated on her own two feet!

That's really incredible!!! I remember the first time I was on skis, I fell too many times to count!

So the question is, does she get her natural athletic ability (skiing and golf) from her mom or her dad?

Love to all!!

That's awesome. But do you know what really tickled me? Brian's enthusiasm. I think he was probably more excited than Marion.

So cool! She looks great. My parents started me on skis at that age - toddlers have the no fear thing going for them, so that's always a plus!

Dang. She's better than me!
