Olympics.

 

Today is the last day of the Olympic Wintergames. Didyou watch the games?

We have seen young people fighting for medals in all sorts of wintersports. Holland is a country with many iceskaters and this year we had several champions , going for gold, silver and bronze. All together they won 24 medals and that  many was a record, unbelievable for such a small country as ours. We are all so proud

We saw it all on TV and here I have a few photo’s to show you.

Het zal vanaf morgen wel even wennen worden zonder de OS, van het schaatsen heb ik bijna alles gezien. Er is een geweldig resultaat geleverd!

Ik wens je een fijne week, Riet! Liefs, Ingrid

Ik heb er volop van genoten de afgelopen weken. Nu maar hopen dat het de komende week goed weer wordt, want anders val ik vast in een diep zwart gat ... :-)

I watched them faithfully and thought about you whenever your country took a medal :))) It was wonderful to see and know that I knew some wonderful bloggers that must be very proud.It was also so much fun to watch one of our very own girls from a small town nearby win the gold in the half-pipe snowboarding. We just had a parade for her here. SO fun.
I hope you are well my dear Riet. sending love...
