Monkeying Around ~ Best Shot Monday

All summer long. She has been trying so hard to master the monkey bars.

Hand over hand…

One hand at a time

How many more bars do I have?

I do what now?

I can do it…I can do it…

And she is off...

And finally. Last week, she made it across without any help from Mommy.
How could this not be my Best Shot of the week?

Look what I did, Ma!

You did it, kiddo. I knew those long, monkey arms and legs would come in handy.

Check out some other big achievements today at Tracey’s.

    Look at that face! Just wait til she gets her first blister. Then she won’t want to do it anymore.

    Go Emma! What a great expression — and what a great accomplishment!

    I remember when I used to be able to do that…and I will have you know that I tried a few weeks ago to do it again. It turns out that some things are NOT just like riding a bike. And monkey bars is one of them…
