What's not to Love?!?!

There are SO many things to love about the Olympics. I love watching athletes live out their dreams. Most of them are not even in Beijing pursuing a metal, they are just there because they have worked so hard. You have to appreciate that! I love hearing the heart warming stories. You may have heard about the swimmer who was in a car accident and had to have her leg amputated. She is still in Beijing competing! Or maybe the 30 year old Romanian gymnast who went back to gymnastics to save her little boy's life! She is also in Beijing competing...against 15 year olds!!! Like I said...I love it! Here are just a very few of the highlights and what has been consuming us and keeping us up late over the last two weeks!!!
Michael Phelps...need I say more!
Veronica Campbell-Brown repeating her title in the 200 m

Shawn Johnson

Nastia Liukin

Women's Beach Volleyball
USA defeating the French in the relay
The Redeem Team

Watching President Bush interect with the athletes!

I don't know what we're gonna do at night now that they're over! There's a huge void in our evenings! My heart was broken when the USA men and women dropped the baton in the relay! I know it hurt ya'll too!
