I have to admit that I am not one that typically watches the Olympics. (Gasp!) I watch a lot of the gymnastics competition, but that is about it. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the talented athletes that compete, but it just hasn't been something I have historically watched. This year is going to be different. I cannot believe how excited I am about watching the opening ceremonies tonight and to see the competitions in the "Bird's Nest" and other architecturally-impressive Olympic venues in Beijing - some that we saw in the building process when we were in Beijing in November 2006. I'm sure tonight's opening ceremony will be nothing short of amazing. But most of all, I am interested in learning more about Chinese culture through all of the media spotlight on Mia's birth country. I only wish Mia she were old enough to understand and appreciate it.
I had to post this picture of a pop can that represents our family - three countries on one can. Oh, it's the simple things in life! :-)
Have a super weekend!
