Kit was on her way outside to go on a walk when she came upon a very interesting sight...
"Um, Rebecca what exactly are you doing?" Kit asked, bending down with a confused expression on her face.
Rebecca peeked open one eye to find Kit's blue ones peering into hers.
"I'm meditating." Rebecca replied.
"I'm meditating, relaxing my muscles. I'm going to do gymnastics and be in the Olympics!" Rebecca said with a smile. She then gently slid down to land on the soft mat below.
"Oooh, I love the Olympics! But, when did you get into Gymnastics? I thought you wanted to be an actress not a gymnast."
"I do want to be an actress, but I got inspired to try gymnastics! And, you never know one day I might get to play the part of a gymnast. This can count as research too!" Rebecca said, practically bubbling with excitement. Kit couldn't help but smile at her new friend.
"Okay then, can I watch you?"
"Yeah! Just make sure to stand back." Rebecca said. Rebecca swung her arms in small circles, readying herself for her first move. Kit laughed as she stepped back slightly, she had no idea what Becca was going to do.
Then Rebecca raised her arms and bent backwards.
"This is called a backbend." Rebecca said, "It's a good excersise to stretch your back." She firmly pressed down on her palms to raise her legs, flipping backwards.
Kit clapped her hands at the trick, "That was awesome!"
"Thanks! Now, my attempt at the splits..."
"Ta-da!" Rebecca beamed, looking up at Kit.
"Wow, I don't think I could do that!" Kit said.
"For my last move, I need to get a running start." Rebecca ran to the other side of the hallway. "Are you ready?!" She yelled to Kit.
"Go for it!" Kit yelled back. She watched Rebecca run towards the mat, pumping her legs as fast as she could. Raising her arms, she flew through the air!
Kit's eyes widened. Rebecca stuck the landing of a perfect cartwheel!
"Thank you, thank you!" Rebecca said, blowing kisses at an invisible audience. She then turned around to see Kit holding up a 10 sign, a smile spreading across her face.
"You're AMAZING Rebecca!!! You should try out for gymnastics, you really could be an Olympian!"
"Thanks, Kit. But, you know what...I think I'll stick with watching the Olympic gymnasts on TV from now on. I'm tired!"
Kit smiled, "After all that hard work, you've earned yourself a snack! And I think I just saw Abbey in the other room with a bowl of popcorn..."
Happy 2012 Olympics!! My dolls and I are so excited to watch the opening ceremony tonight! Go USA! Are you going to watch the Olympics? What are your favorite events? Mine probably have to be gymnastics, swimming, and running!
