Friday Fun ... Cartwheels!

We were watching the kids play with a hula hoop the other day and started wondering if we still had hula hooping skills in our "old mom"bodies... I gave it a shot and sadly, I had forgotten how to do it.  I just couldn't get my hips moving just right.  But that also got us wondering if we could still do some of the other "tricks" that used to be so natural to us. 

Suzie and I grew up doing cartwheels... all. the. time.  We only took a little gymnatics, but this was one of the skills we were taught and fell in love with it.  I started thinking how sad it would be if I'd forgotten how to do it, so I gave it a shot this morning.

It isn't as "pretty" as it used to be, but it still felt really natural.  So in the interest of keeping it real... here's me in my 36 year "old mom" body doing cartwheels for Megan and Lauren.  I'm going to have to teach them how to do it!!
