Classes the week of 10/3/11

Keegan's Monday pre-novice class - It was a fun class and Keegs did well.  No zooms, did all the obstacles, pretty good contacts and much better weaves.  He is also doing much better on the teeter-totter.

We practiced being judges, scribes, and timers for each others runs.  It was fun and Keegs would have gotten a (pre-novice :-) ) Q if he hadn't knocked a bar on his last jump.  Comments were:  I have to run faster and not wait for him, he will follow me.  Have to keep that in mind with Kiah too.

Kiah's Wednesday night class - On the first run she started to zoom, I yelled "NO" and she came back but I could see by the look in her eye she was thinking about taking off again.  I got her attention and started running the course telling her OK, lets go and SURPRISE she actually came with me and finished the course.  The second run was awesome, she hit the weaves perfectly and was soooo fast.  No miscues and a perfect run, really fun run for both of us.  I am so glad I had turkey as a special treat for her doing so well.  We are still taking baby steps and seeing improvements but we are both having so much more fun!

We have a two week break before the next session but we have a run-through next week and some practices at the club before our next trial.  Really looking forward to the next trial on the 22nd and 23rd.
