My 6 year old daughter at practice last night did her first back handspring she was so excited. She was using the incline mat and had a few attempts and she just kept trying finally she did several all on her own. Of course they were terrible looking and she kept landing on her head but alas she did them. I was so surprised. They have only just started working on them and I figured "sure she'll get in by spring time" never thinking that she was that close. She just glowed the rest of the evening. And of course had to show daddy when he came home from work. Now if she just just fix landing on bent arms and smashing her head I would feel alot better. I just kept cringing everytime I saw her land on her head.
