Abby's Favorite Olympic Sport

What a wet, gray day, thanks to tropical storm Fay. It looks like we'll have quite a few days of this. We ventured out to rent a couple of movies, but that was our only outing this morning. After we all took a long, rainy day nap, we turned on the Olympics and found rhythmic gymnastics. I really didn't think this was still a sport, but I was wrong. The girls really liked it; in fact Abby loved it. They found appropriate attire and spent the next hour performing with ribbons. We watched the "pink girl" (who won the gold) five times.They even found medals and reenacted the medal ceremony, with both of them winning gold. Here are a few pics. Notice that Sarah taped her hands and wrists like the gymnasts do.

We had a birthday party at 6pm for one of Sarah's new classmates. It was supposed to be a swimming party, but the weather didn't cooperate, so it was at his house. It was good to get to know some of the other moms and kids, and everyone had fun despite the change in plans.
