Olympic Dreams




The girls and I are watching the Olympics Men's Figure Skating on TV right now and Michal and Kenna are just as excited about it as I am. It's woefully past their bedtime and I've told them "you can stay up for a few more minutes" more times than I count.

In 1998 Eric and I were sitting in the fifth row of an ice arena in Nagano Japan watching the exact same event. Seeing the Olympics on TV is wonderful. Experiencing them in person is nothing short of intoxicating.

Stephane Lambiel from Switzerland is skating right now and Michal just commented, "Mom, he looks like Snow White's prince. Don't you think so?"

You know what? He really does look like Snow White's prince.

Now I really need to go get those girls in bed.


  1. So envious of your Olympic visit. I love the Olympics - Summer and Winter. Such a show of patriotism. I am also the girl that cries when they play any national anthem but especially OUR national anthem.

  2. Glad you're having fun with the Olympics! We've also kept Martina up late to watch men's skating (she can't wait for the women's) and each night we are carrying her to bed as she falls asleep on the couch. Too cute!
