Are you watching the Olympics?

We are glued to the Olympics around here and I was wondering if anyone else has been watching them. We are recording them and then the kids are watching them as if it were the Disney Channel! Which is great! Anyone see that men's swimming relay (the one France was supposed to win)? U.S. won and the crowd, annnouncers & the U.S. swim team went crazy! It's great to hear the kids chanting, "Go United States, Go United States!"
Of course, Jord likes to watch gymnastics - some of those young girls are amazing!

We had a busy weekend. I am trying to get every room in this house ready before school starts next week. I had been keeping all of my school supplies in the laundry room, but now I am moving all school to the basement. We have a room down there that Kev was going to use for an office but never did. So we moved everything out of the laundry room, painted it (the walls had been penciled and colored) and but a cabinet and counter top in there.
The basement room now has three desks, a table, a dry erase board and a book shelf ! We are working to get our supplies and books in order and posters and charts on the wall.

Sunday we went to church and then out to lunch with some friends. We came home for a short break and then back to church for the VBS picnic! When we got home we played outside in the cul-de-sac with the kids for a while (until the bugs started getting us).
Today is a grocery day for me. Kev is at a class that he has to take for Appraising. More of the same today - getting ready for school, laundry and Olympics!

We haven't taken the time to watch. I'm so glad you are enjoying it so much. Setting up a school room is so exciting. I so enjoyed changing the posters and the decorations a few day before school started so everything felt so fresh and new, sounds like you are loving it too. Nice that you will have your laundry room back!
Love you,

YEP...we are watching every chance it is on. Loving it. Keith and I yelled out loud during the great. We taped it for the boys and they loved it. I hear it on now so I better go. Glad you are having fun with the school room changes. Can't wait to see it. M.
