This is our not-yet 2.5 year old doing a somersault! I am blown away by her determination. The kids did somersaults as a "practice skill" at My Gym a month or so ago and since then she's been interested -- she loves being upside down and flipped around, so the idea of flipping on her own had to be irresistable. At a graduation party a week ago, the only other kid in the place, a 5-year old, showed her how and she's been practicing ever since. Her first was in the sand pit at the playground a few days ago, and since then she will try it on any serface, regardless of what's around her. We're trying to teach her to look for a big space in front of her (rather than behind her), but I guess she'll learn that one in any event.
