A vortex!

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I am making practice hoops for Mimulus summer camps – when daughter learned that there is going to be hooping on that camp she got really inspired and askt to borrrow the i-pad to google for new tricks she wanted to learn new tricks with the hoop... and I helped her find a tutorial on a smart trick "back flip wedgie"...

So I joined her in the garden hooping and decided to practice the vortex - and I could do it - both directions! Although I have to admit that it is hard on my head and ears, the hoop keeps knocking in to my head and I also am not good at keeping it miving once upon my arm. But it was progress and I also started to practice to step through the hoop from both dirctions and keep it going. These things has to be practised outside because I lose my grip now and then and the hoop goes flying around.

And because of the wet summer there is also a lot of mosquitos even in the sun, I am itching all over!

    Sounds fun. I need to look up the vortex and see what you are talking about. I am in awe of people who can do the hoops well!

    Great going! Both of you! WooHoo! Man, we NEED a hoop emoticon!!

    I've become addicted to hooping in the backyard and can't imagine going back to the family room when weather gets bad. I'm really going to have to make myself go to the gym, there's a big room there that I can use. I just like being able to pick up and do it anytime rather than make the trip. Isn't it great the tutorials we can find online??

    It's been so dry here I haven't been bothered by mosquitoes; but that hasn't stopped the chiggers, which I think are worse. Their bites irritate for a week or more!

    Love that you are having such a good time with your daughter!

    I have mosquito bites all over my legs from being in my backyard, too. I guess I should wear long pants and shirts, but it's just too hot.

    Congrats on the vortex, that sounds really difficult, but fun, except maybe being hit in the head!!

    Wow, you're doing great with the hoops - I still can't keep one going for more than a couple revolutions, lol...

    Re the mosquitoes: here too, and I've got a knot from last night that itches like mad...
