Today (Jan 18) we went to see the olympic torch ralk (run+walk) by. Base camp was set a Mcdonalds on McLeod Trail and 38th Ave.
The kids were pretty excited and it appears we have a patriot on our hands.
The weather was great, better than the last time the torch passed this way 22 years ago. Mr. Wonderful even wore a T-shirt. Although he admits now it might have been wiser to go and get his light jacket.
The Boys got an awesome opportunity to hold a Torch (not the torch). Its heavier than I thought.
I am torn though. The boys got glowy coke bottles but only two. There are three of them. I have had to remove them from sight as they bring on so much contention. Do I try to find someone I know down the line to get me another coke bottle, which I really don’t want or do I leave them forever hidden so they will not fight?
Note to self:For future, a 2 year old really does care and so does the 10 and 8 year old. Get all of them one.
