We’ve got spirit, yes we do! We’ve got spirit, how ’bout you?

Late the other night, we woke up our children with all of the noise coming from our bedroom.

“Go! Go! Faster! Go!”

“Yes! Holy Cow! That’s incredible!”

Yes, that’s right. You guessed it. We were busy getting all excited watching Michael Phelps win another gold medal.

We’ve been staying up late every night to watch and watch the Olympics. My boys were hooked after watching the opening ceremonies. Now, every day they ask to watch the Olympics instead of their favorite cartoons.

God Bless America.

Our whole family has fully gotten into the Olympic spirit. Our American flag is waving proudly outside. I saw a lady wearing a T-shirt at Starbucks the other day that said, “Phelps Phan.” I have to admit, I was a little jealous. That Michael is pretty darn cute. And his body? Well…um…let’s just say I’d be more than happy to hop into the pool with him any ol’ time. (Sorry, honey.)

If these guys need a fourth for their relay team, I’d be happy to give it a try.


Last weekend we had on the television turned to NBC 24/7. I caught the Monkey watching synchronized diving all by himself. He was just sitting there, mesmerized. It made for a really quiet weekend. Just one more reason to love the Olympics.

I love that my boys are so into it. They’re really into China now. Every time we’re watching they ask, “Is that China?” or “I want the China guy to win.” I’m not sure what the Chinese were trying to do with those opening ceremonies, but they sure did win my kids over.

Supposedly, this guy will be a part of the closing ceremonies.


I’ll be sad to see the Olympics come to an end, but he’ll make it sooooo worth it.

    Geez- Michaels shorts are about to just fall off of him. Yowzers! That’s wonderful your kids are so involved. My husband has been glued to the t.v. as well. I only watch the gymnastics and swimming.And, I’ve heard from a few sources that some of what we saw in the opening ceremonies, like the fireworks, were super-imposed. Just like China to be deceptive!
