The challenges of standing on the sidelines
Despite our 8 am departure time from Prague, I pulled into the parking lot at the Lipno ski resort 20 minutes late. (I’m blaming 1 bathroom break, 1 wrong turn, and 3 chattering kids in the backseat.) The first day of “lyžařská škola” (ski school) had started, and my 4-year old daughter and her similarly-aged half-Czech friend were more than impatient to get into their gear. While I ran to pay for their ski passes, my friend helped them get into ski clothes and helmets.
