Tonight is the start of the Summer Olympics and my family is SO excited. The excitement of a broadway show, in a different part of the world, with hundreds of athletes that see their dreams before them. The Opening Ceremonies give HOPE to all and truly is a time when the world comes together as one!
I remember when I was a child and we would watch the olympics and dream of being an olympic athlete when we grew up. My favorite thing to watch when I was little was the Gymnastics. As I got older, I remember a Summer Olympics video game that I would play over and over again. I became entranced in the different variations of diving, the speed of swimming, and the timing of a good pole vault. It was during that time that I got to experience all the different events and fall in love. I love a good competition and the heart strings that many of the olympic stories pull.
I am excited because my kids are finally the age where they can enjoy the olympics. They can find there own heroes, be exposed to some new events and learn out places around the world. We will have a great time watching the Olympics for the next two weeks!
We are planning on playing this Olympic BINGO game that I came across. Thanks Thirty Handmade Days!
