I have been watching nearly every moment of the coverage of the Olympics since it started. I simply love watching Olympics!!! However, there is one big disadvantage. I am Canadian and living in the States, and therefore stuck with only NBC coverage. I sure do miss the Canadian coverage of the Olympics in Canada!! Oh well, the advantage to this year's Olympics is sharing it with the kids. I am grateful to have the opportunity to show our kids that it is fun to cheer on athletes from all countries. And that someday they will understand that not only are they American but that because I am Canadian they are too!
They really liked watching speed skating and quickly started to pretend they were speed skating. Here they are in their helmets and "skates". I am not sure how cowboy boots became skates!! Looks like they both had them on the wrong feet hahaha!
Then hockey came on and they all had helmets and were throwing a ball into the holes of the cat house. I think they are confusing some sports! But they did have fun. Here is Carlee watching hockey with her helmet.
Then they came up with their own sport - spinning! Sorry about the bump with the camera - I couldn't help but laugh!
The sport of spinning evolved throughout the day and I really think it will be an Olympic sport someday! And in case you can't quite hear her, Carlee said "On your marks, get set, GO!"
Yep, definately a future Olympic sport and Ben will win Gold! He is our champion spinner!!
Oh and in case you happen to be observant - no, we did not spend the entire day in our jammies. Those happen to be our official Olympics watching uniforms! Just so you know!
