I love, LoVe, LOVE the Olympics!!! l-o-v-e.
The Olympics have been on morning, noon and night. I thought that the opening ceremony was great! I watched every minute! Both children enjoy the Olympics but Marseille is memorized by it. Any male swimmer they see, they call Michael Phelps. On Saturday morning, the cycling coverage was on as were getting ready for a bike ride at Furman. While we were there, a high school marching band was practicing, and the kids thought that we were at the Olympics. Then we passed the clock tower and Marseille yelled out, “There is big Bentley!” ( Big Ben is short for Big Bentley). There were a bunch of cyclist and families bike riding and Bentley said, “We are in the race!” It’ so fun to see them put all the things I have been teaching them together.
Anyway, I couldn’t let the Olympics Opening Ceremony begin without a party, so we had a Par-tay!! Well, we had decorations and food.
Lunch – Fish (sticks) and Chips
Snack – Popcorn torches
Olympic Metals- Not finished yet.
Dinner – Food from every Continent, as a symbol of the Olympic rings!!
Dessert – Olympic Ring Cinnamon Soft Pretzels
Decor – My sis helped me out with these! I painted two of the colors backwards… I’m going to be re-painting them!
And even some painted nails!! Glitter white, red and blue on my toes and blue, yellow, black, green and red for the Olympic rings on my fingers. Crazy I know!
I think it’s safe to say that I am a little obsessed! Poor Danny, he isn’t quite as into it and makes a huge exception for my engrossment with all things Olympics!
