Olympic Spirit

Early this morning, the torch relay for the 2010 Winter Olympics came right through our own little town. The boys' Pop, Uncle Steve, Auntie Mindy and Baby Griffin all joined us down at the community centre to see the torch and to celebrate the Olympic Spirit. I don't think that William or Charlie really 'got' the significance of the celebration because of their still-sleepy heads and chilled toes, but it was still great to see. We are planning to follow the Olympics this year as a way of studying geography and math (as well as sports, of course!) and seeing the torch was a great kick-off.

The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning, but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering, but fighting well.
-Pierre de Coubertin
