Am I late? 😀
This (last?) week’s WQ from Julie’s GreenBucks is:
If you were an Olympian, what sport would you be participating in?
Back when I was a little girl, around age 10, I saw on TV this movie on the life story of Nadia Comaneci, the famous Romanian gymnast. It was such an awe-inspiring movie. Among her many achievements, Nadia is the first to ever get a perfect 10 in an Olympic gymnastic event. Her beginnings were humble, growing up in a small Romanian town. But with hard work, determination, and supportive parents, Nadia became one of the brightest stars of gymnastics. I’m pretty sure she inspired a lot of other girls to go into the sport.
And then came our very own Bea Lucero. I secretly dreamed and daydreamed of becoming a gymnast. If only my family had the means back then (and my parents were supportive enough), I would have gone into gymnastics.
My kids show some talent in movement. Patch learned to cartwheel all by herself at age 6. VGood – well, I think her talent in movement may be in the martial arts field. hehehe.
Several times, Patch expressed her desire to learn gymnastics. I have not really taken her seriously. Until now, while writing this blog post. Maybe it’s time I looked into it. I shouldn’t miss this chance to nurture one child’s dream. Who knows where this dream may lead?
And even if it doesn’t make a big star out of my child, at least I hope to have nurtured her dream.
Thanks, Julie, for the thought-provoking questions every week.
