Rachel has been spending every moment she can outdoors. She goes to the park or plays with the neighbor kids or rides her bike. And she spends lots of time turning cartwheels. Lots and lots of cartwheels.
She turns the usual two-handed kind. And also perfect one-handed cartwheels. She tucks her left arm behind her back and confidently flips herself over in in strong, precise circles.
Recently someone admired her skill and asked where she had learned to turn such beautiful cartwheels. Was she in gymnastics? Steve replied, "Nope. Just the front yard."
Just a front yard. And endless determination. And lots and lots of practice. But that's enough to create a Cartwheel Queen!
