Try Again

I have learned that Dotty is just like me when learning new things. Extremely determined and focused until she accomplishes. I remember being like this trying to drop a ski while waterskiing when I was 8 or 9. Got to try over and over and over again until I got it. Dotty tried several times to get the somersault down. These two clips are the ones I picked out of at least 8 on my camera.
So the trying again and again is like me, but the inclusion of her friends in her accomplishments is entirely hers! I love how much she projects on her innanimate toy friends.

Dotty is such a fun kid to be around her personality is so cute.

Yeah for Dotty! Somersaults are hard work, especially for those of us with large noggins - Alice and Jackie never liked them...

I only remember you doing somersaults on your bed over and over again between the trampoline jumping moves. Good thing it was an old style spring bed, impossible to break.
