My Daughter Just Loves the Olympics

To be completely honest I'm much more of a summer Olympic fan than winter, but I've found myself completely drawn into it this year. It just seems like they're having so much fun. I know it's a lot of hard work, but after watching Shaun White fly high in the air on his snowboard how could you not have a big smile on your face. All I could think of was he just had a blast doing that. I was blown away. I would be scared out of my mind doing something like that.

My 9 year old is completely in love with watching Apolo Ohno. Whenever the speed skating short track comes on she comes running. She just loves it. She thinks Apolo is awesome. Now she doesn't like ice skating so the whole thing baffles me. Of course she knows that Apolo was on Dancing with the Stars so I think that's the thing that peeked her interest with him. My munchkin loves dancing of any kind. Well whatever it is I think it's adorable and I've been letting her stay up a little later to watch because she's so into it.

The Olympics really are fun and I'm glad we're enjoying watching them as a family.

I'm enjoying it a lot too, as do all the kids.

When they were younger I would let them stay up late too. Not all evenings, but for two or three sports.

It's great for them to learn the rules, the people who are at the top and they can see that when one is persistent in training something real substantial can be achieved.

Greetings to her.

I'm enjoying your blog! Cute stuff, and I remember having kids this age. Now they're 20 and 22. Thanks, also, for putting an Entrecard ad on my blog. Take care and keep writing! -- Evelyn McCormack
