The excitement of the Olympics are in full swing at our house. We’re staying up way too late cheering on Team USA!
Hands down our favorite event is gymnastics.
Last week we watched as the ‘Final Five’ earned a team gold medal. We teared up when Aly Raisman completed her floor routine, clinching the all-around silver medal. We beamed with pride as Simone Biles earned the all-around gold medal with a dominant margin of victory!
My daughter, age 12, was beyond thrilled when I told her that we were going to see her ‘idols’ on October 16. You see, gymnastics is her love, her sport. This week I have watched her face light up as the USA Women’s Gymnastics Team dominated the world stage.
As a gymnast herself, she has a great appreciation and admiration for what these incredible athletes are able to accomplish.
I know she is not alone. Each week parents across West Michigan take their young, aspiring gymnasts to classes.
Now you have the opportunity to take your gymnastic enthusiast to see his/her favorite athletes.
