Dudes. So much going on in life to catch you up on, but the big topic for today: The freakin’ Olympics. I’m so pumped up about week 1 that I almost can’t talk about it.
I’m consumed right now with gymnastics and swimming. I think I have a future in one of those sports, maybe even both, so I’m just a ball of nerves during these finals.
This was me watching the women’s gymnastics qualifying round. I still can’t even talk about Jordyn Wieber not making the individual all around. I’m beside myself. That might be me up there some day if I keep focused on my training – I’m already feeling the pressure.
My brother Tank and I have been staying up so late watching the finals that I’m just a zombie in the morning.
Thank goodness I didn’t go to camp today, I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with my play group.
You might not know this, but I live in Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the University of Virginia. I’m a total Wahoo. Tall mommy was a rower here, so we wear a lot of orange and blue and support ALL Virginia athletes. If your mommy went to Tech, I can’t play with you at camp. I just can’t.
Today in London, one of our very own swimmers, Matt McLean won a GOLD medal. This is huge. Charlottesville is pretty excited about it, I’m sure all my buddies will be talking about it at camp tomorrow.
(check out this funny graphic. I nearly snorted in my water bowl when I saw it.)
Last Olympics some of tall mommy’s friends won medals in women’s rowing, which is pretty cool, finals aren’t up yet so keep your paws crossed for the US teams.
Time for bed, so until next time, stay cool my babies.
