Did you catch it?

OH. MY.GOODNESS!!!!

Most of you know I grew up in a swimming family and swam competitively for 15 yrs of my life. But I do not believe I saw anything as exciting as the US men's 400 free relay last night!!! It was AMAZING!!! They beat out France, coming from a 1/2 body behind, and beat them by .08 of a second!

It was especially sweet after the French had made the comment - "We are going to SMASH them" (meaning the US).

I am so looking forward to Michael Phelps getting his 8 gold medals this Olympics!!!!

Go USA SWIMMING!

Wasn't it great!?!

It was totally worth staying up for and I'm so glad I did.

Did any of the other 3 end up with a fever? Hope they are well and you all are able to enjoy the rest of vacation.

I'm bummed...I always watch the Olympics, but since we were traveling this weekend, I didn't catch anything yet and haven't even seen the news or read the paper to learn what's been happening so far! Glad to catch some updates here and there...Enjoy the games!
