Sundays in My City~ Olympic Spirit Edition
Here is a picture of the 2010 Vancouver Games torch. Pretty slick and modern these days. Oh, and yes, i do know this lady. She ran one of the first legs of the journey, in Newfoundland. I am so very proud of her- SHE ROCKS! This torch run will be one of the longest in Olympic history and will have 12.000 runners!!
The Preschool gang! Learning how to be good little patriotic Canadians...
The Sugary Sponsor: Coke is it!
Our bank service charges hard at work! Only kidding- but for real, those 'Black Eyed Peas' have MAJOR royalties heading. their. way. forever!!!~ Well, "I've gotta feeling" they do...
The torch making its way through town. I had tears instantly at the sight! I can only imagine the elation this runner must be experiencing. WOW~
And it is gone. See those guys in black, running along with the torch bearer? They are Canada's fine RCMP, getting a nice workout. :)
It means a lot to have this chance to host the Olympics. What a great way to introduce the idea of 'country pride' in our kids, while they are wee. I am not sure that they'll remember this; however, in 1988 when i saw the torch my first time, i probably understood as much as they do.
One day they'll get the importance. If we're lucky, they'll get to see it again in their life time, with their kids.
Bring it on Vancouver 2010~!
We've got the spirit! Let's do it, the Canuck way!
