This is the first year that my kiddo has really been aware of, or cared at all about the Olympics. She has announced her intention of becoming a super-archer (like Merida from ‘Brave’). We caught some of the men’s archery and she thought the bows were super cool. But she didn’t think they were that good, because, you know, ‘some of them didn’t hit the bulls-eye’.
The other day, she wanted to ‘play Olympics.’ We played Olympics all afternoon. I was the announcer. She was Merida, Queen Elinor, King Fergus and Wee Dingwall. Guess who won mostly? Merida.
EVENT 1: Archery
EVENT 2: Rhythmic Gymnastics
EVENT 3: The High Jump
Aren’t the Olympics the greatest? We’ve watched all the main events, but also the women’s marathon, table tennis, and weightlifting. Andrew and I have had great arguments about gymnastics. He says any sport that requires makeup and music isn’t really a sport. This includes ice skating. I start squawking and stamping my feet when he starts with this. . .
