Grace is now a waterskier. With a clever idea I got from a waterski coach’s web post, She made it on I think the third try. The trick is that she didn’t get up, she started up. Basically I’m holding onto the boat end of the rope, Grace has her ski tips on the rear swim platform, and as Mom slowly increases the boat speed, I simply let out line. Done right, she doesn’t even get wet. Fun stuff.
ps. This can only be safely done behind a inboard (MasterCraft/Ski Nautique type boat), where the propeller is well under the rear of the boat.

should have been my response… instead, I just took pictures.
Finally warm enough for skirts, sandals and sunscreen.
That’s a close up of the “put the camera down… now” look. I did, right after I took this
A slow start had the girls running the last block to catch the bus.
For it to look anything like spring, we’re gonna need a major meltdown.
