Meilee has been practicing how to do a headstand. She doesn’t take gymnastics, so this is something that she initiated on her own. She usually practices in the living room and has learned that she has core muscles and that they can get sore if overused. It was a lovely July morning and we decided to go to Woodinville to check out the lavender festival. The beautiful lawn inspired Meilee to practice, which then led Shen to attempt headstands, too.
