An Older Cousin’s Job is to Help Teach.

Eli came over, and so, of course, had to have his first training in jumping on the trampoline.

Only problem was, Ali.


Every time he’d get the momentum to stand up,


She would completely wipe him out with her own, much greater, momentum.


And then, completely obliviously look at him with puzzlement.


But, luckily, Eli enjoyed the ride – both up AND down.




Ali, however, put on her ruby slippers and left him in her trampoline dust.
