My dad did some gymnastics in high school and it just kind of followed him. He would do handstands for us and clap his feet. He would jump on the trampoline and do all sorts of crazy flips and stuff. Once when I was in 8th or 9th grade, I decided that I wanted to try out for the cheer sqaud, but one of the requirements was that you had to be able to do a back hand spring. So, my dad took me out to the trampoline and taught me how to do one. I never did quite master it, and never made it to try-outs, but he spent a lot of time teaching me.
So, his poems. My dad is quite articulate, especially when it comes to writing. He has written some very clever poems through the years and if I knew were any were, I would post one. More recently though he has compiled many years of notes and study into FHE lessons for our family about Zion. He gives us a chapter at a time and they have been so good for studying.
My dad is also a super organizer. He loves boxes and containers, and everytime they have come to stay with us, he has tackled some organizing project, the garage, the basement laundry room/strorage room, our closets, etc. It's great.
So... my two favorite qualities of my dad's would be that he is a performer and that he is an organizer. Probably my two favorites because those are the two that are strongest in me. Lucky girl.
