Go Canada Go!

In our house, the typical morning and after school routine has been changed for the duration of the Olympics.

Usually, in the mornings, the kids do not watch any tv. If they are ready for school early, they play. This is often their best time together, providing they are both in good moods!

Yesterday morning was different, however, my daughter requested to put on the Olympics after breakfast. She was SO excited to see if she had missed anything the day before as she had lost her tv privileges. I made the decision that throughout the Olympics, provided they were ready for school, they could watch the Olympics.

It is fun to see how excited they are about the Canadian team and watching sports.

It first started at school as they watched a part of the Opening Ceremonies on Friday and then on Saturday, instead of Family Movie night, we watched the rest of the Ceremonies that we had recorded. It was so sweet to see their faces light up when Canada walked into the stadium and to see them cheer for their country.

My Mom sent me a fun photo sharing her Canadian pride:

Canada must not have performed well, because these flowers were NOT happy the next day:
