Happy Juggling Day!

Yep, National Juggling Day would be today, June 13th.  And that’s the literal thing – not this figurative stuff we’re all pros at…  (By the way, if you’re late off the mark on this one, June 18th is World Juggling Day, so you’ve still got time to practice.)

To celebrate, we checked out a book and watched a movie on how to juggle.  Boy, am I in my second childhood here!  I’m amazed at how quickly I figured out how to launch three balls in the air and catch them all – every time!

Esmé rather got stuck on making the juggling balls – wrapping tennis balls with balloons for better grip.  I must say that they worked fabulously – the balloon makes all the difference.  Still just a tad-bit big, but much better than plain tennis balls.

And while I was preoccupied with juggling practice, Esmé disappeared for a few moments and came in to join the act – as the clown…

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve ALMOST got that 4th throw thing…

And maybe this’ll help me with real life?

I've never been able to juggle. I've tried and tried to learn but I think I'm just not coordinated enough.
