Olympic Fever

Wow - I loved the opening ceremony and the Aboriginal dancers and art - so beautiful. Valery arrived on Friday night from Calgary and she and Ian caught the last bits of the ceremony on tv. Saturday we watched Olympics on TV and went to Pat's soccer game, while Ian worked at Yaletown Live Site. Sunday was a great day - beautiful weather and we met my friend Karen and went to the Aboriginal Centre, Robson Square and the Bell Cube aftet dropping Ian off at Yaletown. Lucky Patrick won tickets to the medal ceremony and the Nellie Furtado concert so he and Valery went to that. They had great tickets a few rows from the stage. Looks like Pat really had fun!!
Ian and I had dinner at Brix - watched some of the Olympics under candleabra light - and had a gorgeous meal - pretty neat Valentines Day. Ian was off Monday so he and and Valery and Pat toured around and went to the Down town live site while I worked. Early Tuesday morning Valery flew back to Calgary - It was great to have her here for a visit.

Hopefully Valery remembers to send photos as she had the camera. I took one shot which I hope turns out of Valery at the Terry Fox memorial site. Valery has been training for what seems like a long time to be a prosthesist and has just got her first job. They studied one of Terry Fox's artificial limbs at school.

We are big fans of the Olympics at our house. We were living in Atlanta during the games there some years ago and it was such a thrill to be able to attend a number of the events, so I certainly understand all the excitement y'all are experiencing.
