2010 Olympic Games

More Olympic Fun

We have been watching the Olympics and quite enjoying it. It has been very interesting watching sports that we have never seen before. I know we are in Canada, but many of these sports are unfamiliar to me.

It all started with bringing the television up from the basement and hooking it up to the cable that has been sitting there unused for almost a year. We watched the Opening Ceremonies as a family (with grandma and grandma too) and enjoyed it.

In an earlier post (Let The Games Begin), I gave more information about the actual Olympic Games.

Today, one of my readers alerted me to this really cute page about The Quatchi Kid. It is a very creative facebook page about “The epic journey of the Quatchi Kid’s search for his long lost brother, Big Quatchi.” The quote is from the facebook page. Just a little bit of Olympic fun.

When I was viewing the above page, I found Quatchi Watch.  This page shows random images of Quatchi, in all of its various forms (cartoon, costume, artwork, etc). It was a very cute page to view. More Olympic fun.

Do you have a link or resource to some Olympic fun?

Today is day of the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC.

You can follow along with the 2010 Olympic Games on the official website.

There are three mascots, Miga, Quatchi, and Sumi. You can learn more about them by clicking on their names.

There are some fun games and activities on the 2010 Olympic Games website, but they are kind of hard to find, so I have linked to them here.
