American trying to be Australian

Well, the Olympics are here and the hype is everywhere. I love the idea of the Olympics… however, when Luke has it on ALL the time, I become really glad that it only happens every few years! ☺

Well, I was reading up on the Olympic web site because Joy’s school is doing a “Mini-Olympics” as they learn about all the sports and the significance of the games.

I read that, “the goal of the Olympic Movement is to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practised without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.”

I love that Joy is learning that there are many ways to break the language barriers by sharing common interests. This helps expand her world just that much more. And as we travel, she’ll begin to understand that she can make friends no matter where she goes.
