Days Gone By
Can you believe it’s the middle of August already, my darlings? It’s nearly time for our grands and children to head back to school, maybe some of them have already experienced their first week. Summer really flies by when you are having fun. I hope you are enjoying every moment and soaking up the sun–with sunscreen applied, of course!
Have you heard of Simone Biles, sweet readers? If you haven’t, then let me tell you all about her. Simone is an American artistic gymnast who has been dominating her sport over the past few years, including several gold medals from the 2016 Olympic games. She has not stopped there, however.
This past Sunday, Simone won her sixth US women’s gymnastics national title. It was really something to watch. Not only did she win, but she also attempted moves so difficult that many other gymnasts do not even have the guts to try it–men included! These included a “triple-double” during her floor exercise and sticking the “double-double” dismount off the balance beam. By completing these moves, she made history!
