My kids were surprisingly observant as we watched the opening ceremonies of the London, 2012 Olympics.

“How can there be people from Equator (Ecuador) in the Olympics? They would be too hot!”

 “There’s a country called Hungary?” I would NOT want to live there. Is that why you said there are kids who are Hungary in the world?”

“It said that girl’s event is shooting. I would NOT want to be there for that one.”

“The people from Egypt look really pretty and nice. Why don’t they look like that on the news?”

“I love Mr. Bean—what event is he in?”

“Ha Fiji! I think they mean Kijiji”

Being the Queen would be awesome. You get to jump out of a plane.

“Mommy!!! Look!!! Everyone on the team from China looks Chinese!”
