2008 Olympics

Well, it is hard to believe that the Olympics have come and gone yet again. I clearly remember trying to explain to a 3 year old A that the Summer Olympics would not come again until she was 7. Of course she did not understand that then, but she does now, and is a bit sad about that fact. R is slowly catching on...she was only 1 last time, and did not remember any of it. They have had a good time counting to how old they will be next time, and so forth. We ate Chinese food last night to celebrate the Olympics and watched a bit of the Closing Ceremony before making them go to bed so that they would not be too tired for school today.
A has decided that she is going to play softball in the Olympics. After watching the Rhythmic Gymnastics, that is what R wants to do. She kept saying "AWESOME" everytime one of the girls got out on the floor. I am not sure what she liked more...the beautiful outfits they wore or all the different apparatus' they used. She just loved it. M has spent the last 2 days twirling herself around the living room. She laughs the whole time.
We have had a great time watching and enjoying the Olympics. Until 2012...

Hey they are supposed to take softball away from the Olympics. They might change the rule after they US got beat this year.
