We've also enjoyed watching the Olympics these last few weeks. I'm not so sure the kids care that much about the sports, but they are intrigued by all the different countries that are represented and all of the flags that represent those countries. As I write this they are making a collection of flags to represent different countries for their stuffed animals to wave. Currently we have an American flag, an Olympic flag, and flags for both Finland and Scotland.
Alex had his Pinewood Derby for Cub Scouts over the weekend. His car was an ambulance. He placed 4th (out of 13). Which was good enough for us. My dad (the genius) designed the car so that it would do well, but not so well that Alex would win, and we'd be forced to endure another drawn out competition at regionals.
