After dinner the kids played outside for a little while and then we came in and made a sign. I’d been telling Bri all day that she could make a sign for the Olympics so this is what we came up with…if we’d spent more time on it, it would have been much better, but we did this about 10 minutes before the opening ceremonies started. I told her she can make another one soon if she wants to!
We were totally amazed by the opening ceremonies! They were the most impressive I think I’ve ever seen! I don’t know if anyone will be able to touch it in the future. China has set the bar high! Many times I found myself choking back tears and just sitting in amazement of the beauty and wonder of it all! Mom and I commented how sad it is that in our country we really have no traditions, not like the chinese. When you look at their history, the beauty in art, costumes, theatre, architecture, it just makes you stop and catch your breath! I think the chinese are such a beautiful people, and I loved every minute of last night. If you missed it, here is a slide show from You Tube that I really liked, and I thought it does a good job at capturing the essence of the ceremonies. I hope you’ll spend time to watch this games over the next two weeks, and root for your team, whatever country that may be. As for me….I’ll be rooting USA! USA! USA! USA!
