It took him a lot of time, practice and perseverence to become an excellent skier but he DID it. He is out there on the slope, at least three times a week practising. In the summer, when there is no snow, he trains with his friend, Circ who is a runner.
I’ m still deciding on the names of the Shaples but it is already settled that the oval one is called “Ovy”. He is a boy, he likes skiing and he is surprisingly good at it even though he is knock-kneed.
