GO USA!!!

Dallin, Blake, Brad, Layton, Landon, Bobby, and I all stayed up till like 1:15 am watching the gymnastics last night (or should I say, this MORNING??!!!)

I have always loved watching gymnastics, they are so talented! The boys all adore Shawn! She is darling, but have to say, I fell in love with Nastia! I loved watching her and her father hug and seeing him so proud of his daughter, he was a bit emotional... I even teared up! I can't believe her mom wasn't there!!! I thought it was SO cool when she got on the phone to call her mom! I wanted to watch her tell her, "Mom, I won the GOLD!!!" But the TV went to a commercial, I was bummed!

I was SO happy to see them take the gold and silver!!! GO USA!!! We are so proud of you!!!

Wasn't that awesome?!! I loved it. Did you know that Shawn is only 4'8? Tiny tiny! But I love how she is always smiling. Yeah, I am hooked to the Olympics this year.

I normally watch the Olympics from start to finish but haven't even watched one minute of it this time...I don't know why. Just busy I guess.

I have been losing sleep from staying up and watching too! I love the gymnastics! And I can totally understand why her mom can't watch! I know I would be the same way or I would have a coronary from the nerves!!!!

SO glad it turned out the way it did! I thought Nastia was going to get robbed!
