Go China Go
We're having a blast watching the Olympics. We missed the first two hours of the Opening Ceremonies (we were on the road home from vacation) but we were awestruck by what we saw. Tootle quickly went off to bed after seeing some fireworks, but Doodle watched until the end. We were both very touched by the adorable nine-year old earthquake hero and amazed by the spectacular pageantry. Today we did yard work and then had the Olympics on TV all afternoon and evening as we did chores (me) and played (the girls). The girls are having fun rooting for both American and Chinese athletes. Several times today they broke into a loud chorus of "Go, China, go" that our neighbors could probably hear.
