LID #6 - correction

It's our 6th month of waiting to get Emily!
One thing we are really excited about right now is the anticipation of the Olympics in Beijing, 8-8-08. We have always enjoyed watching the Olympics both summer and winter. When I see a commercial on TV with Morgan Freemon in the background I cry, does anyone else do that? Just the thought of how these athletes have worked incredibly hard to get to this stage is amazing. The profiles that they do on many of the American competitors always gets to me. The great thing though this year is the history they will be sharing of China. A few years ago one of my parents international student brought the mascots for Cheryl's kids. It's fun to think the time is finally here. My favorite competitions to watch are gymnastics (of course), swimming, diving, and track and field events. Maybe when we go to Beijing we will see where all these things took place.

We were fortunate enough to be able to visit Bejing in 2005, as they were beginning to prepare for the games. It was neat to stand right there and think the Olympics were going to happen there! I cannot believe it has been 3 years since then!
