More handling sequences with Kili in class. We finally get to start weave poles probably next week. Poor class has been held up by having to wait for Kili to reach 15 months! hee hee. Weave poles are basically the last thing we need to do. Teeter is coming along really nicely. We are about half height and instructor is hardly touching the board to control the drop now. Frame is still a work in progress as she sometimes likes to launch herself off it from the top. Oy vey. Not sure when we'll start trialing. What I do love is that we've been taking it nice and slow with the contacts and such but have really worked on some tougher handling. I think most of the sequences we do in class are more difficult than those seen at the Novice level so we should be more than prepared for that (thoughts on this... maybe I'm deluding myself!). Not sure when we'll be able to trial. I think I'm casually aiming for about 20-24 months.

Anyway, first sequence was kind of fun and involved some handling move I don't know the name of. lol. Second sequence had a blind cross which I am starting to really like. My instructor wanted me to put the cross in earlier but that just messed me up. ha ha. I did it well (I thought) the first time, but then trying to do the cross earlier I kept muddling myself up, so although Kili managed to figure out what the heck I was trying to do it felt awkward. More work needed.
