In honor of the 2012 Summer Olympics (that are being held just a day’s drive from here… one time zone away, I might add) a local homeschool ROCK STAR mom initiated, planned, organized, cooked, and set up a fantastic Olympics Activity Day for the homeschool kids of Wiesbaden. (She also happens to be my friend and I’m honored to call her that!)
I haven’t mentioned she has a newborn and three bigs. And her bigs aren’t independent like my bigs, so putting on this event was nothing short of Super Hero Work.
The date was set far enough in advance that we couldn’t see the forecast, which is a good thing. We may have cancelled the event altogether had we known it was going to fall on THE hottest day yet. It was well over 90 and we were sweltering!
Our athletes did great and competed with great attitudes. We all had a great time! In the pictures you’ll see the kids are wearing “name tags.” Instead of their names, they represented countries.
I love the group of people we get to do life with. This homeschool group has been such a blessing with just the right amount of opportunities to keep us busy when we want to be with no pressure to do more than we can. I love it!
