We traveled to the Capital City yesterday to surprise our oldest grandson and have lunch with him at his school. We enjoyed every minute and I believe that he did too. After that we went to his house to visit with his sister and watch her end-of-year tumbling exhibition. She gave us a preview of her strength before we left home for the gym by climbing the door frame in the kitchen!
The exhibition that followed was every bit as impressive. She's strong, she's feisty, she's adorable! She can do full-on push ups, lots of them, and she doesn't balk or complain.
I told her mother while watching her flip and tumble that it's so hard to think that this is the one, born four weeks before her due date, that worried us all to pieces because she refused to eat back then. We prayed, we begged: "Please, Lucy Ann, just 1/2 an ounce-- you need to grow, you need to thrive". If only we'd had a crystal ball.
Congratulations, little tumbler, Super Job indeed!!
