The whole thing was just so amazingly gorgeous I could just sit and watch the video run all day.
It was on way too late here for my kids so Brittany planted herself in front of the computer Saturday morning and didn't budge for about two hours. She sat there with her map of the world through the whole parade of nations finding each country as they came in.
She and I agreed that our favorite part of the Artistic portion was the "pretty ladies"
I just kept being amazed, just the numbers of people involved in each performance! I would love to just hang the whole thing on my wall and look at it all the time if I could! Isn't the spirit the Olympics brings amazing? Such a great feeling of world-wide family. My friend Circe says it so much better than I. You really should read her post on the Olympics here. Keep in mind she has a beautiful daughter adopted from China.
Oh yeah, we have had swimming lessons this week. Brittany and Matthew have made such great progress! This is a big deal, they have not always been big fans of sticking the old face in the water.
And that little head just poking out of the water is Matthew. Such a great week of swimming I am actually looking forward to one more!
Now let's go back to watching the Olympics!
