Bubbles, Gymnastics and Playing with Friends

Click to enlarge the collage. Ana Claire has recently learned how to do her cartwheel. She loves going to gymnastics. Look how straight her leg is while she is turning her cartwheel.

Just trying to combine a few days in one post. We have been busy with school, baseball, gymnastics and just everyday things. I haven't had much computer time. It has been absolutely gorgeous outside and we have been trying to enjoy it.
Ana Claire has also started throwing some horrible tantrums. It is funny what you allow yourself to forget. I know the boys threw them, I guess I just purged them from my memory. Ana Claire has a very strong will. I am having to pick and choose my battles with her right now. There are just somethings you can't ignore. I have gone back and read some books that I have about dealing with tantrums. I have found a strategy that seems to be helping. I will be glad when she is through with this stage. :)

I wish I could get more photos of the boys, but they take off to play or hang out with friends every chance they get.

Way to turn that cartwheel Ana Claire! You are a beautiful gymnast!
(Don't worry, God will channel that strong will into something for His kingdom...just wait and see!)

all of the shots are great! love the smile when she is fishing. Did you make her Capri outfit at the bottom?
Chloe did dance this year and last but I want to find a gymnstics class instead for next fall.
We know about tantrums around here.
We have a spicy Hunan girl ourselves. Chloe often says what are we going to do with our girl momma? I guess we will have to love her :)
I can't tell you how many times I say just give it to her, make her happy! Because at 2 and in her car seat she can be quite ornery. I really need peace when I am driving and the dvd player always did it for Jake and Chloe but not Ms. Caitlyn.
again great pics! :)
