This photo was taken in Monterey, California, this summer. The students and I had a really nice time playing volleyball, eating burgers, doing yoga and playing around on the beach.
When I was in high school, one of my good friends was a gymnast. We spent a lot of time hanging out in parks. She could do all kinds of crazy flips and walk around on her hands. I decided to learn, too.
Now, I love to kick off my shoes and throw up my feet. It is a good test of balance to see how long I can do it or how far I can walk. I would still really like to learn how to do a back flip and back handsprings. It looks like so much fun to flip around so freely. Can you do it? If so, will you teach me?
