Summer Olympics-Home Style!

Friday, Miss Scarlett and I, along with some friends, celebrated our own Home-Made Summer Olympics. We had five kids participating...each one picked a country to represent. Miss Scarlett picked China, Sam picked USA, William picked Australia, Andrew picked Russia, and Leah picked France. My friend Karyn had downloaded the Olympic theme songs, as well as the national anthems of each country. We had a full day planned.

We started first with the Olympic parade into the backyard with ribbon streamers and country flags. All of this was done with great pomp and circumstance to the Olympic medley. All the kids received a medal in a sport...discus, relays, croquet, horseshoes, and basketball. Of course, only gold medals were given. Miss Scarlett got her medal in basketball and was quite pleased with herself.

The kids made their own torches and Olympic mascots. We finished up with a big Chinese lunch at a local restaurant where we ate too much. A wonderful time was had by all. We can't wait to do the Home-Made Winter Olympics in two years!
