Landing Practice

I figured the best remedy for making crappy landings yesterday was to get it right today.  Just to be sure everything went okay, I got Adam to go up with me.  I did three touch and goes and then the full stop landing, all nice and smooth.  On the first one, Adam reminded me about approach speed and to level off and to flare--and that was all it took.  I had already figured out that I wasn't flaring high enough yesterday, and his gentle reminder got me back in tune with the airplane.  The other landings were for insurance.  So now I feel good again--but not quite so full of myself.  ("Full of myself" is, I guess, a euphemism.)
