What a wonderful day we had today! The children have been preparing for the Croft Olympics for weeks by practicing the various outdoor events. In class, we have been discussing the 2010 Wnter Olympics and learning all sorts of interesting facts about our country of Sweden. Today, the children were all very excited to represent Sweden at the Opening Ceremonies and begin our Winter Olympics. Everything went off without a hitch and it was a proud moment for everyone when the Canadian and Olympic flags were raised as hundreds of children sang our National Anthem. Monday, the Olympics will kick off with the snowshoeing competition. Our grade level is set to compete between 9:00 and 10:15a.m. every day. All parents are welcome to attend each event and cheer us on or lend a hand. We are in for an amazing two weeks of fun and activity that will undoubtedly leave lasting memories for the children. Let the Games Begin!
