When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

Is there a more exciting time for our world than right now? Our whole planet has come together with a common goal. I love the Olympics!
On Friday night, I had all my little kiddies sitting around me, a big bowl of buttery popcorn on our laps, enjoying one of the most magnificent shows they would ever see.
Like the rest of the world, I have never seen an open quite like it. What precision! It was so amazing and then to realize that people were in those boxes! I heard that they had been practicing those box movements for months and had NEVER gotten it completely right until the night of the performance!
I watched Michael Phelps take his first Gold and the look on his face made it a priceless moment. I find myself glued to the TV most of the day! I don't want to miss a thing!
I watched gymnastics yesterday and wow! How incredible these athletes are. I watched the men's volleyball and how devastated they were to lose their match. I loved the swimming or course and never knew that Michael Phelps had started training at 11! I loved watching his mother during his race! I was practically out of my seat myself, cheering him on!
I plan on seeing as much of the competitions as I can and I want my kids to watch too. These games are important and I want my kids to feel that. They have watched with me most of the time and they find themselves just as excited as me!
