I love the Olympics!
Ever since I was little, I've loved them. I love the feeling of unity that they bring to the world.
It was so fun to stay up and watch the Opening Ceremony last night. I let the kids stay up and watch with us. Emma dropped off to sleep around 8:30 or so. Jack held on until about 9:30 or 10. But Molly stayed up for the whole thing.
We had to watch it on tape delay - (so much for living in the same time zone as the Olympics, right?) - so it didn't start until 9:00. They had a really neat preview from 7:30 to 9:00 where they talked about Canada's history, and about the tragedy of the Luge athlete who died yesterday. So sad. Hopefully the other luge athletes will be safe. I'm a little nervous about that track...
Anyway, I was so impressed that they were willing to accept the change when the torch malfunctioned and go on with the show. Overall, I thought the opening ceremony was well done.
Now..... Let the games begin!
