I really need to start writing down all the funny things Jenna says. She comes up with some of the best Jenna-isms! Maybe if I start sharing them on here I will at least have record of them ...a place to go back and remember all of them.

Anyone who has been around Jenna lately knows that she cannot go more than about 5 minutes without breaking out and doing some sort of tumbling - handstands, cartwheels, roundoffs, etc. She does them constantly and it usually doesn't matter where we are! Yesterday the two of us made a quick trip to Ft Wayne to do some birthday shopping for Jacob. We were speed shopping since she had to be home by 2pm for her best friend's birthday party. We had already been to 6 stores when we stopped at Target. We were in the shoe department when I looked over at her and she did a little "shiver" and made a noise - kind of like when you have a chill. I asked her what was wrong and she said "I just can't hold it in anymore. I just have to tumble. I really need to do a cartwheel right now." It just made me laugh. She had sat the whole time on the way to Ft Wayne and then gone through 6+ stores without being able to tumble and it was driving her nuts.

Not sure what happened as I got older but I used to be like that when I was little. My grandma used to say that she never knew how I was going to enter a room and my mom has told the story of "losing me" in a store only to see my feet up in the air between clothes racks! I guess I still have a little bit of that in me if you recall the hallway at Kalahari!

I regret not writing all of my girls' comments down too...I guess it's never too late to start! Carsyn can't walk straight anymore...she has to twirl and arabesque her way around the world.
