My #50 Precious Words Contest Entry

Learning to Ski is Scary Fun!

Helmet, snowsuit, boots, “too tight!”

“Slope’s too steep!” 

“You’ll be alright.”

Shuffle, shuffle, slip, slide.

Scoop, sit. Fast chair ride.

Frozen nose. Icy toes.


Off you go!

Straight skis?

“Too fast!”



“Tips touch to slow or stop.”

“Watch, Mommy!”

Zip past trees.

“Can we go again, please?”

*Thanks, Vivian Kirkfield, for hosting this fun contest. Check out the #50 Precious Words Contest here and add your own entry. There are lots of great prizes!
