    CP has had mental blocks this year due to an injury last year from a back walkover, I've had to learn to just step back. I don't go to practice very often and when she gets home I have changed from asking her about tumbling. Instead I ask her things like "So what's something that went well tonight? What's something new you learned?" At first she wouldn't mention tumbling but it's gotten to every now and then she will mention something about tumbling and I was completely blown away during their 2nd competition CP did her back walkover. It was not a pretty one but she did it and her coach made a huge deal about how excited she was that she did it during the routine. I think now she has been working on cleaning it up but she hasn't said anything and I haven't been at practice so I don't know for sure.
