Olympic Fever!

I can’t believe the Olympics are here! It’s time to find your Olympic spirit, gather your iPad for live streaming and figure out the time zone difference! Actual events start tonight (Thursday) with the actual opening ceremonies happening Friday night.  It’s all so very confusing.  I have always wanted to go to the Olympics, or cover them for work-related activities.  But I can honestly say that this is the first Olympics in a long time where I’m kind of happy I’m watching from home.  Have you been following all these reporters in Sochi?

What are your favorite Olympic sports?
I really would like to try bobsledding some day.  I’m also a big fan of figure skating, and I’m excited for the new team element this year.  Curling is another one of my favorites and I really think I’d be awesome at it.  And Biathlon? It’s skiing with guns? I’m intrigued.

Meanwhile, we are preparing for our own Olympics on Sunday with my son’s birthday party.  We are just about ready with Olympic flags, events and medals.  Can’t wait to share that one with you guys!  Meanwhile, I flashback of our Olympic Spirit from The Cook Family.
