There have been some awesome Olympic events going on in London these past few days. Here at home, we’re so excited to watch, cheer and celebrate for all the athletes and especially Team USA. Our kids headed out to summer camp this morning dressed for the theme: Olympic Day. Our 7-year-old daughter dressed as a member of the Women’s Team USA Gymnastics with glitter in her hair and our 6-year old son was decked out in swim trunks, USA t-shirt and gold medal around his neck – as a little redheaded Michael Phelps. ***Olymic Update 7-31-12: Mom thinks the camp Olympic Day costumes sent some good vibes out to London – o.k., maybe it’s just a concidence or their lifetimes of training – today the Women’s Gymnastics took All Around Gold and Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian in history today. Congratulations to all! Go Team USA!
We’ve been honored to have Our Dad’s Flag visit with some of these past and present swimming greats along with upcoming notables. We love that Our Dad’s Flag ambassador Sherry Von Riesen is pictured below with the Berkley Swim Team, 5 of their members qualified for the Games – namely 2012 medalist Nathan Adrian. UC Berkley is so well represented in the 2012 Olympic games with 45 student-athletes, alumni, coaches and campus-community members all over the games.
