    So happy!

    Random post... and I don't expect responses, but oh well... I just need to get the excitement out of me. Today after figure skating, I had my trapeze lessons. And I finally caught my first forward-over double pike!! And not to a catcher, but to another bar! It was amazing. I'm pretty sure no one knows what I'm talking about when I say the skill technically... basically the forward-over double pike is when you jump off the platform, build up a good swing, and on the out portion of the swing (away from the platform), you flip over the trapeze bar and maintain a pushup position as you fly through the air once backwards and forwards, and the end of the forward swing you "kip" (basically slightly put your legs forward then thrust them up and behind you to get a flip), grab your toes, flip twice in the air and stretch out to catch the bar or catcher. I've been happy dancing all day (except during nap time!)

    That would be ... awesome! My niece did circus arts for a while.
