At gymnastics, Ellie generally shows off her best listening, which means she only runs the wrong direction sometimes.
Today, I sat in the stands watching my daughter warm up with her peers, following along step by step - sometimes a bit behind, but able and willing to try new things.
Her class got to the floor course, and I heard both teachers give Ellie a clear instruction. "Do a straddle roll." Ellie can do a straddle roll! She loves rolls!
I grabbed my phone to shoot a video.
I was laughing too hard to capture the follow up: Ellie's coach simply pulling her back up, trying not to laugh, and saying "Now do a straddle roll."
Oh, and Ellie executed that straddle roll beautifully.
