Olympics

Each day we can't wait to turn on the tube and see an Olympic event. It is amazing the determination and perseverance of so many athletes from around the world. I have to admit though, that I am probably like the rest of the nation and am a cheerleader for Michael Phelps. He is amazing and our household is in awe with this kid. His sleek nature and the way he glides through the water like a dolphin has us in awe. Alyssa has even vowed to pick up swimming lessons next week so that she can be just like him.

It was perfect timing that a Churchill High School mom asked me to do a photoshoot of her son while he was swimming. This kiddo is a Charger swim team member who allowed me for a short moment, to pretend to be an Olympic photographer. Haha! Have fun this school year Ian and I hope you like your swim pictures for the sports magazine at your high school! You were super sweet and quite a swimmer!

What a great shot. Our family loves watching the Olympics too. We are fans of the winter Olympics more, but are enjoying these too.
