Olympic Delight!

Monday was the big day!  Taking an early ferry ride left me a full day for exploring.  The outsides of the Olympic pavilions were pretty (I had no desire to wait two hours in line... each)!  So, I enjoyed a lovely stroll along the sea wall, water taxi rides, even some harp street music.  Keeping in mind that the city is at somewhere between 2-3 x it's usual population, moving around Vancouver takes time. Buses, trains, and ferries are all involved in moving the huge crowds of people.  I left myself lots of time, which I needed!  I got to the venue eventually though and had plenty of time to: read in the sunshine, get through security, and then pick my souvenir purchases before the full intensity of the crowds struck.  Then, I saw Olympic ice!  I saw Olympic skating!  It was so breathtakingly beautiful :)  I even thought the right people won.   That night, I keeled over in bed both elated and exhausted after managing the two and half hour commute back via three modes of transportation - bus, train x 2, boat.

This week's Objectivist Round Up:

Andrew and I practicing our duet in the voice lesson!
Hopefully, this will improve with our practicing.  He kindly helped me post but wanted to indicate it was under mild duress.

Cute antic:
Cameron was getting frustrated with one lego that kept popping off and disciplined it with a cranky, "No!  Don't do that!  You're going to get your name on the board."  (That's one of the measures at school when a kid has been disruptive.  Not a favorite of mine, but it seems to be more of a keeping track than shame issue.  Hmmm.)


  1. I love the little audio clip - your singing together seems like so much fun!

  2. Certainly for us and I think we're favorite students since the sessions almost always run late! :)
