Robert,

I can certainly see Kendra moving in that direction, though we're not  
quite there yet. She's seven-- maybe in a few years she'll be flipping  
too. She does get a lot wilder and crazier in things like the  
commercial style bounce houses. Way more room to move and we know  
she's not going to go over the side of anything. Too bad full sized  
trampolines or bounce houses aren't such a good fit for inside the  
house! She has also used a commercial trampoline in a gym a few  
times-- wow, those are nice. They make me want to start jumping on  
them myself; they look like loads of fun!

Was that the first exposure you had to using one (high school) or if  
you used them earlier, could you tell a bit of when you began to start  
things like doing flips, etc?

Thanks for sharing that,

Richard
