Dream Big Girls!

Last night I thought about the fact that I (along with millions of others) was watching this woman's dreams comes true. We've been doing that the whole time we are watching the Olympics. It feels great, I think. Nastia Lukin became the third American woman (Mary Lou Retton and Carly Patterson) to win the gold in the women's all around gymnastics. Her performances were breathtaking and beautiful. Shawn Johnson, another American girl, won silver.

I have really been enjoying the Olympics. I love seeing the athletes perform. I like being exposed to the many different sports, too. I've watched fencing (AWESOME!) and water polo (zzzzzzzz) and beach volleyball (good) as well as my favorites- gymnastics, swimming, baseball and basketball.

I cry for every medal ceremony that I have watched. I'm just cheesy like that. I'm moved by the determination and dedication of all of the people who compete. I've never been dedicated to anything for that long. It's really mind blowing. I will be so sad when everyone packs it in and goes home.
