The Olympics

Sorry I haven’t been around much. I’ll explain in a later post as to what’s going on.

For now… our little family has been watching the Olympics every single day. We follow it online and discuss it over dinner. We’re having so much fun (it’s a much needed break) that I’ll be sad to see it go next week. Luckily, it’s every 2 years.
Peanut’s favourite is “nastics” while the girls are tumbling on the TV, she tumbles for us.. does her little swan moves, and takes a bow.

So here’s some interesting things about the Olympics:

  • The winner of 4th place is said to receive a potato medal, according to the Czechs. Isn’t that hilarious?
  • The Olympic motto is “Citius, Altius, Fortius” in Latin meaning “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.”
  • The five interlocking Olympic rings are blue, yellow, black, green, and red. They represent the five major regions of the world: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.
