Learning how to jump the rope

So Spunky brought home a jump rope from school today. Her gym teacher asked her to bring it home to practice since she is having such a hard time. Well she has been outside now for two hours off and on practicing jumping rope.

When she gets something in her mind that she wants to do she is so determined to make it happen. It can be a frustrating quality at times for me as her mother, but I know it will be a quality that I am glad she has in the future.

When she first started practicing this afternoon she was only able to do two jumps at a time without a mess up. Well the boy and I just went outside to watch her jump and she did NINE jumps in a row!!! She was so excited and it was just to cute to see her face all lit up with joy. :)
