The half term holiday challenge was set when we arrived in N.I. and Lj learned what a great skipper her cousin was. Nana supplied the ropes and for the next 3 days Lj skipped from morning til evening. On day two I set her the challenge of 20 consecutive skips by the end of the week. By the end of day two her best run was 47 skips. She showed unbelievable determination and energy!!! I had witnessed her determination to succeed when the dentist said she must stop sucking her thumb and here again I marvelled at her stickability and commitment to achieve. She did take the odd minute out from skipping to draw some pictures of herself and MJ skipping!
