The Olympics!

I'm really enjoying watching the Olympics! Are you?

I kind of wish I was home in the mornings so that I could watch them and then go into work in the afternoon, but that really isn't possible if I want to get paid, I guess!

I've tried to watch as much as I can in the morning and we're trying to expose our students to it too by putting the live streaming of some of the events on the projector in our classroom. Every once in awhile I catch them watching some of the events. They really enjoy the freestyles skiing and snowboarding events because of the huge jumps!

There have been lots of moments that I've really enjoyed so far! So many neat things involving Canada.

I can't wait for a lot of the events coming up, particularly the men's hockey, team luge and skeleton!

What events have you been watching? What are you looking forward to?
