We got straight into it today, we practiced our forward and backward rolls, (it’s all about the neck and hips). Then we practiced lifting and carrying each other, with different degrees of ease. We had a really super session and our teachers are very proud of what we are accomplishing.

Today was action packed! We started off by building our teamwork skills, working in different pairs we carried each other in various ways, such as piggy backs and wheelbarrows. We also leapfrogged over each other and practiced our other growing skills. We have learned so much already.
