I don't talk about my kidlet all that much but she made these over the weekend since we are both addicted to the Olympics. I thought I'd share them as I was pretty impressed by her mad photoshop skillz. We do not have the fanciest schmanciest version of photoshop but she managed to work it out. Oh, she'll be 15 in May. So she's not some 6 year old genius or anything. :-P
The Dutch won a couple of more gold medals in speedskating. Surprise. LOL We got the silver in the women's 1500. We lost the hockey game to the US last night as KZ noted but it was a pretty exciting game and seriously, if one game is going to destroy your confidence you don't deserve the gold medal. Get back in the saddle and kick Germany's ass. Ski jumping had amazing little Simon from Austria taking the gold again. I was kind of hoping the old dude from Poland would win. One, we lived there so I kind of have an affinity for the Poles and two, it's his last Olympics but he got the silver. Not too shabby.
We are looking forward to the ice dance finals tonight and it's hard to believe they are halfway over. There was tragedy for the figure skating team in that our female champion (who starts tomorrow) had her mother die suddenly of a heart attack yesterday. She had just arrived at the games to watch her daughter skate when she basically dropped dead. The skater says she is going to continue in her Mom's memory but I can only imagine the difficulty in thinking about skating when your life is in turmoil.
On with the Mommy brag part.
This is Maelle Ricker, the Canadian who won the gold medal in women's snowboard cross.
This is Patrick Chan, our male skater who couldn't quite get it together, but he is only 19, so he's got time yet.
