I have always enjoyed watching the Olympics. It's one of the rare times when I feel there's something worth watching on TV. My TV time increases about ten-fold during those weeks.
It's only been a day so far, but I'm really enjoying the way that M and L are taking an interest in the events. They can relate as fellow athletes this time around. We are all following the swimming competitions. L is endlessly fascinated with the volleyball - both beach and indoor. (As am I, those beach volleyball boys are cute!) M is interested in field hockey and basketball.
They won't get much chance to sit in front of the television as they will be away at camp Monday - Friday. But we'll tape some events for them, and enjoy their enjoyment of this international spectacle.
