Tumblina . . .

You will have to excuse the addition of more tumbling photos each month. Parents watch night is scheduled for once each month, and I plan to keep practicing during parents night so I can try to perfect taking photos of indoor action.

Jenna is really improving in tumbling and tumbles around the house constantly. She does a mean cartwheel and is really quite flexible. She is dying to learn how to do a back walk over and can't wait to move up a level and learn new things. She has huge dreams of being a cheerleader and also being in the Olympics. I may just have to send her to live with Aunt Brenda or Aunt Jill so she can go to one of those training gyms in Texas (isn't that where they are?).


Demonstrating her flexibility . . .

Getting some help from Monica (the owner) on the bars . . .

She has perfected the "stick and finish". . .

Showing off her cartwheel . . .


In mid air after a jump off the spring board. . . You'll be happy to know that she nailed the landing.
