I, for one, am sad to see the Olympics end.
We unintentionally created a routine of sorts around watching the Olympics with Zander this year and it was pretty special. Both children would take a quick bath together after dinner. Then, we would put Cassandra down for the night and head downstairs to watch. (Thank heavens for the DVR, so we could fast forward through the advertisements.)
Zander was fascinated by the games. In typical Zander fashion, he could tell you about many of the athletes and their medal counts. He could identify the uniforms and flags of the various countries. Yesterday he built pretend a bobsled out of wooden blocks. He pretends to luge and race short track at random times. This is usually entertaining when it's not in the middle of dinner.
Looking forward to Summer 2012!
