With the Winter Olympics advertisements being broadcast constantly, we are pretty well saturated with Olympic excitement. I always watch them with some interest (usually summer more than winter because I used to be a swimmer) but this year it is far more exciting.
Peter and Robert ski jump, they occasionally play hockey or skate, and we have all tried luge at least once before. Since they actually are showing some interest in Olympic sports, it’s so much more exciting. Their eyes light up when they see anything Sochi. These are the moments you see Olympians talk about on TV.
“I saw the Olympic ski jumpers and I knew I had to do that someday….”
Of course, Peter is a little more confident than the average Olympian.
“I am going to go off THAT jump at practice tomorrow!” he shouts as he points to the giant slopes in Sochi.
