Olympics & Friendship

While the Olympics are going on over in Bejing China, my kids and I participated in the fun, spirit and competition right here in our own backyard. My very good and special friend Dawn and I put our heads together for a 3 day mini camp for our children and their friends ages 18 months-almost 6. Thank goodness we had help from many of my older daughters friends and brothers (thanks Anne, Dan, Alex, Sarah, Sydney,Nicole, Moira, Conor and Kyle!)

We opened up each day with a song around the "friendship flame" (their own hand made torches of course). We did a craft and learned about the olympic flag (Did you know there are 5 rings on the olympic flag and that each ring represents a continnent? Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia.) We also learned that the white background on the flag stood for Peace or in our case Friendship.

Here are some of the pictures from our fun week of events. We had so much fun with all of our olympic friends that came out to share the week with us.
