it’s called hoop dance…

…or hooping, because the term ‘hula hoop’ is owned by some toy company so hoopers can’t use it. Not that we’d want to. It makes for a generalization that we’re trying to get away from. Trust me. This is not your mama’s hula hooping. Watch the last video and you’ll see what I mean.

But first, for your viewing pleasure: my first hooping video. Well, the first one I’m willing to share. It’s eight minutes long, and the first half pretty much sums it up, in case you’re wondering…

Hey, did you notice my new house?! I just love that built-in hutch and those columns. Oh, and the extra tall ceilings which are great for hooping. Who needs a dining room? That’s my hooping room!

Now let me show you what I aspire to accomplish. This is Brecken, my favorite hooper. She handles the hoop like no one else…

Big difference between the two of us, I know. I’m planning on making a little video at the start of each month and putting it up to record my progress. Gotta enjoy the journey, right?

Who knew you could do so much crazy stuff with a hula hoop?! Oops. I mean a hoop.
