Did you see it?

Did you see the USA men win in the 4x100 freestyle relay!? I stayed up while Ben went to bed because I knew this was supposed to be a good one! But I had no idea how good. The French had trash talked about "smashing" the US team. The commentaters were saying we would probably take silver maybe bronze. Then the race started and Australia was doing well. At the last turn we started to see the US gain on the French. I sat up and started to yell at the t.v.! I can't believe with 3 sleeping bodies I was yelling. I am still so stoked! Incredible when Jason Lezak barely outouched the French team to break a world record and take GOLD. You would think I just swam or one of these swimmers are great friends of mine the way I feel. Great to be an American!

Have I told you lately that I LOVE the Olypmics.

We totally watched it! I woke Shane up and we cheered as loud as we could without waking up the children! It was so exciting! Definitely my favorite Olympic moment so far.

GOt to love those swimming boys :)
The kids love watching in the AM and I think we see the stuff from the night before. Renae is a big Gymnast (sp?) watcher and Noah the swimming.

I loved their sportsmanship also. No hard feelings.
