Countdown to the London Olympics!!! :D

I love love love love love the Olympics.

Summer or Winter.

That’s why I’m so excited for the 2012 games in London to start TOMORROW!!! Sorry to yell, I’m just really excited.

I love the Olympics because of the tradition, the competitiveness, the pride for one’s country, the pomp and circumstance of the opening ceremony, the camaraderie of all of the athletes who have come together and support one another no matter where they are from, the opportunity to learn about other cultures and to see athletes from other countries and learn about their stories and because athletes can represent their country according to their ability- no matter their start in life.

For this Olympics these are a few of my favorite things:
