Did you watch the Olympics? In our house everyone including the dog watched, as late as they could stay up. Number One Daughter, in the fourth grade, fought gamely to make it until the end every night. Every sport was a hit; snow-boarding, ski jumping, speed skating, and yes, figure skating.
We watched all the skiing. As you might expect, Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso were huge for my girls. While they enjoyed the wins, one of the more illuminating things they saw was Vonn’s problems in the slalom races, where she missed gates and fell out of the race three times.
