Here is a shot of half the cupcakes. These little buggers were a big hit and I heard about them from her teachers and from other students. Morgan's English teacher recognized them immediately with, "Canada cupcakes!! Why?" Her response: "I like Canada." He then said, "Cool" and took a cupcake!
The second half of the Canada Day for Morgan was the creation of tshirts for her and her friend, Rachel. Morgan got the idea on her own and I think they are quite nice. She got a lot of comments on it!
Here is Morgan in my classroom, so you can also see where I spend the majority of my days, kindof.
And here is Rachel and Morgan proudly displaying Canada's colors. I just shrug and carry on, thankful that Morgan has a good time. So, congrats to Canada. They have a great anthem. Morgan has already memorized it.
Now I will say that I have always loved the Olympics. I thought that these athletes came together and competed and were so happy to be there and had never met these other athletes from other countries. These foreigners were completely unknown to them and every 4 years, they would meet up. I have always had a very "Pollyanna" attitude about things and I'll admit that I still do. I love the Olympics. We have watched coverage everyday. It has brought out family closer. We have had a lot to talk about and have cheered together for sports we never care about - bobsled, curling, biathlon, snowboard cross, etc. I can't wait for the summer Olympics in 2 years in London. It will be the summer and I'll be able to spend more time watching. I have also gotten a lot of knitting done. Farewell to the Olympics. I think I have done my job as a mother to pass on my passion for the Olympics to my children.
