Proud to be an American

TGIF!! I don't know about y'all, but we have been completely obsessed with the Olympics this week!!  Every night, as a family (all 5 of us), pile up in the living room and watch the Olympics until we pass out! We have had so much fun and the kids love it. I cry every night and they all laugh at me, but I am just so proud of our teams!  I am going to be so sad when they are over...

The day of the girl's gymnastic finals, I saw on Facebook that they won the gold. I knew that Shane and the kids were excited to watch it so I did not spoil it for them.  When I got home from work that night, we ran to get school supplies and grab something to eat so we would be back in time to watch the event.  I was the only one that knew we won, so everyone was excited to watch.  Well, as we are eating dinner, the TV is paused, and Claire says "The girls win GOLD tonight daddy!".

Here are the kids school shopping :)...Claire and Owen were more than thrilled...and Bree never misses a photo op :)

One night watching super late...Bree was in bed and Shane went and got us smoothies :)..

Have a great weekend! USA USA USA USA USA!!!!!!
