Olympics Mania and What I Know For Sure (this week)


My kids are loving the Olympics.  They are competing everywhere--the backyard, the swimming pool. We created our own family Olympics.
There was an intense soccer match.

And of course the gymnastics floor (yard) routine.
I made an attempt to make it educational and told them they had to each pick a country to represent and research five facts about their home country.  They didn't get as excited about that part.  

The Olympics are a fun way to feel global without going anywhere and feel athletic and competitive without having a sponsor.  We definitely have Olympic fever, I know that for sure.

Here's what else I know for sure (this week):
The Olympics can be crafty fun for the whole family.  There are lots of cutesy crafts and projects all over the web that you can make.  I particularly love the idea of making an Olympics memory book or time capsule.  
We used this very cool template from www.supermommoments.com.
I can even Vlog about the Olympics. Check out my latest MomPulse YouTube video.


Find your greatness! Sorry, I can't stop with the Olympics mania, but check out how cool these Nike spots are.  Inspiring.
 



I can post about more than the Olympics--Check out this old school jam, do you remember "Summer Girls" by Dino?  I used to lather up with a little sun tan oil and lay out while blaring this bad ass cheesy tune. Yeah!



I have social media gimmies--I finally reached 600 followers on Twitter and I want more.  Click here to come play with me on Twitter (@AngelaYBlood).



We are making progress on washing off the car paint. Two weeks after we left on vacation (and a few days before we hit the road again for a weekend trip to Pittsburgh)here's what we have left:
We decided to keep it, because it makes us (okay maybe just me) laugh.



What do you know for sure this week?  Leave a comment and tell me what you know.
