I'll tumble for ya'...

Poor, Scott! I am sure when the girls get older they will start to share more his interests: hunting, fishing, golfing, etc. (oh please, who am I kidding! ha!) But, for now this house is filled with girls that love to dance, flip and cheer! Abby has had a sudden surge in her interest in wanting to tumble. With all the coaching I do, they are total gym rats, but I never push it on them or make them take classes, etc. Any thing they ever do is because they want to, and if I can find them a different coach, I do. (I don't even let Abby take dance at the gym where I work, because I want her somewhere where she has her own teacher, own studio, something separate from what I do) But, lately all these kids want to do is FLIP! Anywhere, everywhere!...and, you know I am down with that! :) Above is Liv working on her back hand spring. There is a good video below, too!

Here we are jumping! ha! And, I have to note, Scott's photo shooting was on delay and we never did get one of all of us at our highest points in the air at the same time, and I am getting old so after a few takes I was DONE! ha!

And, this cracks me up. Abby took this picture of me jumping and I immediately thought of the photo under it that I had just taken of her jumping a few weeks ago....too funny! That child is such a mini version of myself, it's often scary. She makes the same faces I do, the same gestures, and clearly, the child looks like I spat her right out without any help from Scott! haha! But, we are making the SAME. EXACT face in these pics! Creepy.....

And, some videos of the girls tumbling...check out Liv stretching in the first one while Abby is running around. That child cracks me up!

And, little one doing her flips! She has ZERO fear when it comes to this stuff and actually jumped backwards to do a back handspring on her own at the gym the other day and landed right on her upper back/neck and flipped feet over head. Thankfully, she was on a wedge mat but it scared the crap out of me and we had to have a loooong talk about never doing that without a coach to help! Ugh...she is going to give me a heart attack one of these days with her lack of fear!

About Me

Welcome to our life! :) Our life seems to be a constant 3 ring circus these days, but we have a lot of fun, laugh a lot and enjoy every minute of it (okay...almost every minute-haha!) Scott and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we are the parents of 2 amazing daughters, and another little one on the way. This blog is a way to keep in touch with family and friends. It also serves as a 'year book' of sorts for our family. Enjoy!!
