Last Friday was the presentation day for the children's Olympics projects. We met in the local library and the children displayed their work. Each chose a different topic within the Olympic theme. Austin wore the torch bearer suit Howie wore when he carried the torch for the Calgary 1988 Olympics. That was very special for Austin as his project was all about the Olympic Torch and its origins and history.
Grandpa and Daddy were our special visitors. You can see all four of the projects lined up here. Austin's is at the far left. Fraser's is next ~ all about the participating countries in this year's Olympics. Calvin's is third from the left ~ Alpine Skiing was his chosen topic. Emma researched the history of Figure Skating (with help from Mummy). Each of the children wrote a research paper as well.
One of the teachers was interviewing Austin in this photo.
All four children are in front of their displays.
We also had the opportunity to go skating as a family prior to the library time. All the other children involved in the day were able to participate as well.

Daddy and Mummy ~ see my official Olympic gloves? :)
Howie has been very busy at work this last while,
so it was extra special that he was able to join in with us! :)
