Abby is just over halfway through her second tumbling class this year. She looks forward to it all week and is all smiles! Here are some photos from family night.

Sorry so many of them are blurry. I still haven't really figured out the right setting on my camera for action shots... because apparently it's not the "action" setting. Maybe I should read that book they send along with most technology purchases. I think they call it a manual.

Abby ADORES her teacher and often brings pictures that she's colored for her as gifts.

Getting some help from the helper.

Getting a little push from her Dad.

This is Abby's Grandpa. She adores her Grandpa.

On the balance beam.

This is Joey. He's in her class at school AND in her tumbling class.

They are buddies and were soooo excited to see each other that night.
Too cute!

My heart is full! LOVE the first and last pics! The expression on Abby's face in the first and the body language in the last. Makes me happy!

Just showed my bird Abby J's tumbling pics and then she did a little somersault for me :)

Love the pictures! Especially like the one of her and grandpa. She is blessed to have many grandparents that adore her :o)

It's great to see Abby so active and smiling. You are such a great parent. Your family is very lucky to have you.

Rita- I love those photos as well. She's really such a sweet girl.

Dani- Abby rarely does somersaults at home... maybe she prefers the mats in class.

Mom- She is very blessed.

Racheal- Thank you, but she also has a really great dad. I don't know what I'd do without him. He takes her to her classes and she usually complains whenever I go. It's their thing. : )

Penny- Thanks! I LOVE how she is smiling in EVERY single picture. So cute!

Looks like she is having a great time! My wife and I are 'researching' various summer activities for our daughter Emily who has autism/PDD (my wife is Kerri who introduced me to your blog). We're going to be looking into swimming, and maybe even some yoga type classes. These photos inspire me to make it happen!

Hi, nice to "meet" you! : ) Thanks for commenting. She loves tumbling. I was just thinking about what we'll do for summertime, too. I don't think this tumbling class runs in the summer. Swimming needs to be a priority for us, too, since we love to go to Lake Michigan in the summer. So far we've been ok, because Ab has some anxiety about the water, even though she LOVES the beach. And I've figured out with Abby that sometimes the best way to deal with her anxiety is to just jump in and do it. (pun not intended, but fitting)

Thanks for commenting! Glad we can be inspirational for you. I've really appreciated Kerri's comments. It's nice to know we're not alone in this adventure.
