Olympic Fever!

We have caught the Olympic fever over at the Rappaport house.  WE have watched the opening ceremony 3 times, watched alpine skiing, figure skating, speed skating, and anything else you can think of.  We had an Olympic story time on Monday where they made torches Jude promptly pulled all of the streamers off his and announced "Don't like!") and read How To Train With A T. Rex And Win 8 Gold Medals by Michael Phelps.

Today we had an Olympics Playgroup, Shanna brought Olympic Gold Medals (Leftover Hanukkah Gelt with ribbons glued to them - great idea!) and all of the kids made their own Olympic Flags.  We watched the opening cermonies and the kids played with every toy in the house.  A good time was had by all (I have no ides whey every word is in caps!)

The finished art projects

The artists

Abe & Jude's finished projects, Jude's was complete with signature!

The gold medalists (Abe had 8 like his favorite Olympian Michael Phelps!)

We hope you all enjoy the Olympics like we have in our house!
