". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Tumbling Class

For the Evan fans out there . . . a 1-minute video of him in tumbling class yesterday. We decided to enroll him because he seems to have a knack for it--he has been doing cartwheels and forward rolls and headstands around the house for several years now. Notice in the video that he elects to hop across the beam. The instructions (followed by everyone but Evan) were to slowly walk with arms stretched to the side to help with balance. But of course that was too boring for this kid.

I think you can pick Evan out, but just in case, he's in yellow.

No, Mom, it wasn't because the directions were boring. By hopping, he got to try again! Two times on the beam for 1 turn; a 5 year-old's dream!

We put our youngest in gymnastics when she was that age because she also seemed to have a knack for it. Her nickname was "Wildchild." One time we caught her scaling the refrigerator by holding on to the handles on each side. Now she takes three dance classes a week. She would rather put her abundant energy into that.
