We are pretty excited about a cool art spectacular the kids have planned and are currently executing, but more on that when it is finished...

In the meantime I want to share a cool photo that Vicki took at the winter sports tournament yesterday.  These guys were awesome and I think this photo shows a bunch of strong, positive, responsible, brilliant contributors!

Olympic Fun

Here is a funny video from the London Olympics.  The kids enjoyed it and I hope you do too.  Maybe you can talk about Chariots of Fire (if you have seen the movie).

P.S:  Thanks to Te Maire for reminding me to put it up for you to enjoy!
