The Richmond Olympiad

I love the Olympics...I think they'll always have a special place in my heart. I have enjoyed them thoroughly this year, as I've been able to watch them through the eyes of my children. Tonight we were watching the women's vault in gymnastics for about the 5th time (the girls are enthralled with it), when my girls asked me, "Could we be in the Olypmics someday?" I told them that they can do or be anything that they want in their lives. :) That made them pretty excited, and my 5-year-old decided to start her training tonight in our living room. :)

It was pretty amazing to watch her "vault" over the edge of the couch! (Don't worry, she's not naked...she has on her flesh-colored leotard. And the wild hair is because she is jumping, lol!) :)

haha I love your little "naked" warning :). I, too, love the Olympics. We watched them every single night. My favorite?? Women's gymnastics- particularly the vault. Glad I'm not the only one :)
