Are You Getting Ready for Sochi?

If you’re like me when the Olympics are on, you’re all like WHOOOOOPIE!!! I’ve said it during the Summer Olympics and I’ll say it now, I will watch ANY and ALL televised Olympic events!

Despite the fact that Sochi is having some real problems getting ready for the games, I’m sure in the interest of unity everyone will get their acts together and we’ll all have a good time.  This is a great time to talk to kids about how we are all different but yet we’re the same.

Here are a few pictures from the Olympic webpage that caught my eye:

Look how cute these mascots are!?!  I found a website for the kiddos to learn about the mascots.  Click this link and check it out.

Another photo I found reminded me of Katniss from Hunger Games. You know I had to get a book reference in somehow, right?

Look, it’s the Girl on Fire!!

I’ve got a pinboard full of Olympic games and activities. I’m always looking to add more items to it so let me know if you have a board too and we can share in the excitement!

By the way, what’s your favorite Olympic event aside from the opening ceremonies? Mine is Figure skating.

Hint: Miners take canaries underground with them.  When the bird stops breathing, it’s time to get out of the mine.
