It’s really all I can do not to hunker down in our cave of a house and watch Olympic coverage all day every day. I love the Olympics!
In the spirit of the games, I finally got around to setting up the pool noodle target station that I pinned many weeks ago. To give you an idea, I actually made the rings on July 4th; that was as far as that went til now. (We actually had a blast with just the rings, so it wasn’t a total loss.)
