Not a great picture, but a great morning at a local festival, culminating in Abby having a turn on the tumble bus.

Last year we couldn’t even get her to go near the bus but we thought with her friend there she might be persuaded this time. Early on in our visit she got in line but then changed her mind just before it was her turn, so I was surprised when, just before we were going to leave, she said again that she wanted to do it. It was a cold day, by then it was getting near Evelyn’s nap time, and this time she didn’t have her friend to bolster her confidence, but she seemed determined so we waited it out again. And this time she went in.

I’m always happy to see her breaking out of her shell, but it seemed a bit more hard earned this time and therefore a little sweeter.
