I have really enjoyed watching the first week of competition. Swim, swim, swim...paddle, paddle, paddle. I can actually watch the swimming live (well, taped delayed) without knowing the results, but the gymnastics is another story. I just finished watching the ladies (girls) team final and wasn't it nice to know ahead of time that we WON. I cried anyway. I felt SO bad for those little Russian girls - that is worse than the agony of defeat!
Here at home we are working on our doggie paddle event. Emily is a great swimmer, but we have a boat so it's best that everyone have a life vest.

We cut the tag off after that - she is not Minnie Pearl!
And here is my Olympic stitching - I was behind but Ruth has given us 3 weeks to catch up...

Enjoy the rest of the games,
