I went cross country skiing for the first time in my new shoes today. I went to the middle of the yard, strapped in the skis and fell right on my back. Ouch. I decided to go the back 40 where it was flatter. Poppy tried to bite the skis but she got used to it.I went round and round to make some paths, which made it much easier. The time just flew by. I plan on doing this every day that we have snow!
