Olympic Fever

Anyone else's kids completely entranced by the Olympics?

We recorded it the whole time we were on vacation, so now we're catching up and pretending we don't know the results. Every night we eat dinner in the living room - a HUGE first, I assure you - and watch another evening of DVR'd Olympics. The girls adore the gymnastics portion, of course, but are much more into other sports than I'd anticipated.

The swimming races get the girls on their feet, screaming at the television and jumping up and down. I think Maddie's going to have a heart attack sometimes, she's huffing and puffing so hard. We watched several track races last night and Cora finally got up and started stretching- limbering up for a big race, I suppose. But they do love their gymnastics, and whenever it comes on Maddie and Cora being assiduously practicing handstands and cartwheels and splits and shoulder rolls all over the room -until the competition is over.

Heaven help us when the Olympics close on Sunday.
