With the gymnastics theme going, Harrison declared that he could do a somersault. We asked him to show us and what came was no somersault. It was more of a flop to the side of your body...thing. So after some coaching, he can now do a semi-decent somersault. We are a little worried about his neck as he seems to be doing a lot of resting of his entire weight on his neck while he waits to push over to his back. So a little more practice will have to be done with that!

Cartwheels and Somersaults
For whatever reason Chris asked me if I could do a cartwheel. Of course I can't!!! What is he thinking. But I tried anyway. This led to much comic relief for our family in the next 30 minutes. The first thing that happened was that I practically fell down. The second thing that happened was that Chris almost got slapped for laughing so hard. The next thing that happened led us all into a fit of laughter. Bennett tried to do a cartwheel. And of course because Chris, Harrison and I laughed at him he tried to do another and another and another each time the laughter getting louder (and me close to tears). Now, these 'Bennett cartwheels.' I don't know exactly how to describe them to you. Imagine standing straight up and then dramatically leaning your head to the side, holding it there for 2 seconds and then falling down. It was just hysterical.
