Today I got a little desperate with the Olympics. Somehow I ended up watching ping pong...and got sort of into it.
The Olympics are such a display of incredible human beings and I even found myself being in awe of the ping pong players! I just know I could never do that. Who are these amazing people? Also coming from a parent of boys that are in sports, those parents should get a gold medal for being so supportive. I am sure there were times when these sports ran their familys' lives but I am so impressed with their support of their kids and their dreams.
Tonight we let the kids stay up and made s'mores in the backyard with some of our good friends. I love summer nights. I love the perfect temperature, the amazing smell and really every time we are outside as the sun crawls behind the mountains I get that feeling that all is well with the world. I am such a schedule person that it is hard for me to let the boys stay up too late and deviate from our evening routine, but every once in a while I have a heroic moment and the boys get to stay up and experience those perfect moments with us. Tonight was one of those nights. I hope to get a lot more in before school starts in a month.
