Holding On

I've been trying to encourage my kids to watch the Olympics. For some reason, they don't seem interested. My 6 year old started to watch some of the speed skating competition. He watched for a minute and looked confused.

I said, "It looks hard to skate that fast, doesn't it?"

He asked, "Are they allowed to hold onto the wall for help?"

"I guess so, but then they wouldn't go as fast."

"Mom, you should skate in the Olympics. You can skate without holding onto the wall!"

He made my day.

I love the Olympics, Cookie, and we watch it every night. Your sons are probably too young to appreciate them.

Hugs,

I am having a hard time getting my girls to watch the Olympics too. I think they see so much sports now they are just not impressed.
