    My little (black) girl has been being Go For the Gold Gabby (as she is known at my house) every time she sees a curb to balance on! I think a big part of the reason my little 3 yr old has been so taken by the Olympics is that there are so many black women (& men) that are being shown & profiled. She asks lots of questions about them. I am so thrilled Gabby brought home the gold & made history!

    • I think it’s wonderful that so many Black American athletes have been able to bring home the gold for the USA and invent their own history in the process. Thanks for commenting on my blog, tycobeans!! Make sure you come back.
