mini olympics

I am pooped, physically and mentally, so no wit here today.

Spent the morning outside with the twins and all their buddies at preschool. It was Olympic Day and so much fun. We lucked out and had a beautiful sunny, warm day. My cheeks are feeling a little fried. First the Flame arrived and the Olympic Torch was lit. Sang the National Anthem. Then they were all divided up in groups and participated in several events: curling , hockey, luge, relay race, ball throwing, treasure hunt, snow angels and the best, hot chocolate with marshmellows. Then they all received gold medals for excellent participation. My hats off to the teachers who deal with all these little munchkins every day.

Then off to Timmies for a quick lunch followed by their skating lessons. I'm ready to curl up in bed and they're still growing strong. Ahhh, youth!
