Reaching for Olympic Gold

Holy Moly!  Have you been watching the Olympics?  The kids and I have been transfixed by the swimming, diving and gymnastics.  

What about you?

We watched the Olympics all day yesterday. Did you know the Chinese pick their gymnastics competitors at three years old? That's insane.

I have been watching too. I have enjoyed the gymnastics and swimming. It would not surprise me at all that the Chinese pick their competitors so young.

I am loving the 30 something woman that is competing for Germany. What a story she has!

I haven't watch any yet! Need to do that!

Shawn Johnson is an IOWAN, so it's hard to avoid the Olympics in Smalltown :)

I'm not a big sports person, but even I can't my eyes off any Michael Phelps competition. He's amazing.

Hey Vivian!
Yeah! It's good to check out your blog again. TV coverage is a bit scarce where I am (don't have cable) and the CBC tends to show mostly Canadian athltes but I am glued to the TV. I have waited four years for this moment. So exciting. Go USA gymnastics!
I'm back in CA next week. Looking forward to getting back to a regular routine.
Take care!

Oh boy, it's the best thing about getting back from vacation. Now I can keep track of them via the internet or the TV, both of which were lacking where we were.

I was on the edge of my seat watching gymnastics last night!

I am one of those people who cry while watching the Olympics. I cry when I see Mrs. Phelps cheering. I cry when I see her son cheering for his relay team members, I cry when Shawn Johnson looks as if she might cry.

Well. It's just that we all understand what a life effort it all represents. Impossible not to honor that.

Even though I fell asleep during swimming last night, I LOVE IT!
