In the mean time, we enjoyed attending an event in our own neck of the woods, the canoe sprint. The rowing and still water paddling events are taking place at Eton Dorney, near Windsor. The kids and I headed over earlier this week to watch some of the heats.

Even though there was only one American racing, we all cheered loudly for her!
|There she is!|
Our tickets were "general admission" which means we had no assigned seat. Kate perched atop a rubbish bin to catch a glimpse of the action while I held Reid on my shoulders. The littlest one was stuck in the stroller, but at least he can say he went to the Olympics!
The venue was really nice, very organised with so many helpful volunteers. I am so impressed with the way the London 2012 committee has put this event together. Well done!
Now we're gearing up for our big Olympic moment Thursday when we will watch Team USA play for gold in women's soccer. Stay tuned for more on that . . .
