Joy is learning how to walk properly on the balance beam, and dismount. They also have exercises on the trampoline to help with poise, posture, and balance. She loves it!

It’s been quite a while since I did one of these, but the exact picture to use came to mind when I saw this week’s topic.

I took this self-portrait one day last year when I was feeling sad, but not depressed, just very down and experiencing a sense of loss

Well, Labor Day has come and gone. And the last week of summer has been exciting to say the least. Well, some parts of it were exciting. I got a good tip on a gymnastics studio in Huntington Beach and Joy did a free lesson. As you can see, she LOVED it. I bought her a leotard (which she lived in for 2 days) and signed her up for classes. Not sure when they start as she will be the 3rd girl in a brand new class.

In a previous post I showed you how well she has come along in her skateboarding. At the beginning of summer she could barely scoot along. Then she was introduced to a cruiser. Now she can zig-zag, do hills (sort of, hops off if she goes too fast), and can confidently tackle the skatepark. That was a field trip with daycamp. I have the feeling that as soon as she can swim without floaties or a life-jacket she’s going to ask for a surfboard. It’s the next logical step. I’m a bit relieved that she wants a cruiser more than a regular skateboard. You can’t do tricks on a cruiser. 🙂

A nice frosty, cold caramel mocha frapp. I took the picture on the spur of the moment when I saw today’s PF topic.

Two peas in a pod.

I took this one on our first road trip to Vegas back in 2004. I thought the shadow of the van on the desert was a cool effect.
