Beijing Bonanza...

We seem to be having a Beijing Bonanza at our house. We can't wait until 7 when the Olympics coverage begins. All of us seem to love the swimming best of all. c likes Rebecca Soni who has lots of freckles, "and kind of looks like me." I like Natalie Coughlin who likes cooking and photography and can't seem to swim straight in the pool, but takes down world records anyway. How cool is that!?!? C is just happy if they are NOT showing synchronized diving or beach volleyball... Track and Field is almost here. There is enough drama for everyone. How about the wrestler who threw down his Bronze Medal and left the podium. He may be the next subject of Good Manners Thursday... That's bad form Mr. Wrestler. However, we've seen lots of great sportsmanship too and amazing stories and scenery. Who wants to go to China? I do!!!

I was crying last night when the US girls took the gold and silver in the Gymnastics. Yes, it was 1am..but the irony of Russian parents who left communism to come to the US to raise their child in freedom getting the medal in China was too much. Greatest awards ceremony for me thus far. Although, Michael Phelps....wow. It's nice to feel the USA pride again. It's just been too negative with all the campaigning.
