Anna had her first ballet class this week. (She loved it! Thank you Mema and Papa!) While she was in her class Josie, Ruthie and I watched gymnastics next door, since they had a big viewing window and the ballet classroom didn't. What Josie liked the most was watching the kids do the tumbling, or backwards somersaults off of an elevated mat. We had to come home and try it ourselves. Anna and Josie are both experts now (they're doing it off our bed onto the twin bed below, but 1 or 2 couch cushions stacked up on the floor does just as well):
The last video of the day is of a trick that Anna has been wanting to show you all for a while now. She found some new 'super high!' jumping off places at the playground. Here she is climbing and jumping:
What post would be complete without Ruthie's new tricks? Here's a picture of her standing on her own. She has pretty good balance now. No steps yet, though.
