We talked her through the hand signals, and warned her that she definitely would fall off. I have to say, I was very proud of the way she hopped onto the tube, like a seasoned pro, showing no fear or apprehension at all.
When she fell, she jumped back on and went again....she did really well. She LOVED it.
I learned a very valuable lesson yesterday. Things I did regularly from ages 13-21 are NOT the same when you are 33! I used to be able to hang on forever - water skiing, wake boarding and tubing, yesterday 20 minutes on the tube felt like 6 years, and the fun rolls are no longer fun they hurt, every part of me hurts.
