Determined.

When she was 3 1/2, she stayed up all night teaching herself to tie a bow around the neck of a stuffed animal. I never had to teach her to tie her own shoes.

When she was 4, she flung herself around the front yard until she learned to do a cartwheel.

When she was 6, she climbed on her bike in the driveway and taught herself to ride without training wheels. Then she taught her best friend.

Last week, on the trampoline, she taught herself to do a back handspring. I wasn't quite sure that she was actually doing it correctly, but when she went to gymnastics this week--it was indeed a back handspring!

My Maggie is a determined little critter.
