We did nothing this weekend but watch the Olympics on TV. It started with the spectacular opening ceremonies on Friday, the kids and I even tried our best to watch all of it but we all fell asleep halfway through the athletes parade. On the Saturday, we watched as the first of the Aussies battled it out for the early medals in the cycling. It was quite exciting as we all got carried away cheering on the Green and Gold. On Sunday we got to see Stephanie Rice's gold winning 400 Individual Medley in the swimming. It was quite something and we ended up cheering her on in front of TV.
It was fun to see the kids getting into the spirit as they cheered the Australian Olympic team on with chants of "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi" from our living room.
