It wasn’t too long ago when Ada couldn’t do a cartwheel. I just told her to practice in the dining room. She could see Helena do it, but it wasn’t happening for her.

A few days later she had it. And then by the next week she looked like a big wheel going down the sidewalk since she was refusing to walk. Just one cartwheel after another.

By now, she’s doing cartwheels with just one hand.

Today, though, she’s playing on the trampoline.

Helena has been working on her hand stands. We’ve been doing them in the pool for a year now, but she’s now trying to do them inside and out.

Liam has been doing some flips on a larger trampoline now. He wouldn’t do one at the Renaissance Festival when it would have been easy, but the family across the street from his friend Ruben’s has one, and he practices on that.
