I'm watching the Olympics right now with Mason - specifically Misty May and Kerri Walsh playing beach volleyball. They are really good. Did you know that during breaks they bring out cheerleaders in bikinis? Is that really necessary? It seems like they should give the crowd a little break and bring out some jugglers or a magician.
Anyways, I've been fascinated by the Olympics this year. Watching Phelps and the rest of the swimming team has made me very proud to be an American. I get the satisfaction of feeling like I earned something without any effort at all. But, isn't that what America is all about? (Liberal readers, I meant that as a joke even though that probably made total sense to you.)
China is getting a lot of Gold medals, but you would probably win too if you're life was on the line. But, is it really that amazing they are winning so much? I mean they have over a billion people there. They have 4 times more people to choose from than we do. I'm honestly not bitter about this at all. Go back to your rice patties! OK, I'm done with that.
I'm trying to figure out if there are any events that I could start training Mason on to be ready for the 2028 Tehran, Iran Olympic games. I don't think I'm going to have a lot of athletic ability to work with. He will have about a 5'6'' frame so basketball, volleyball and the majority of other sports are probably out. I've browsed the sports list and I'm going to focus on archery, badminton, shooting, ping pong, and possibly trampoline.
Before we decide... how in the world did badminton become an Olympic sport? The last time I played was in the 7th grade, only because I had to. I always thought it was just a sport that we played because there wasn't enough room for a tennis court. My question is could I have actually pursued this sport in Tennessee if I had wanted to go to the Olympics? I can't imagine how embarrassing it would be if I was in the Olympic village and ran into Misty May and had to tell her that I was there for badminton. I think I would lie and tell her I was a beach volleyball cheerleader.
So, let me know what sport you think I should go with and GO USA!

Mason and friends. My college roomates came over and brought me dinner last night. We got a picture of all the kids. From left to right: Will Napier, Mason Lackey, Annie Chapman (asleep), and Wyatt Napier.
Mason got a bath today and this is the first one that I think he halfway enjoyed. My definition of "enjoyed" is: he did not scream bloody murder all the way through the bath. Maybe he was just in a good mood today. We will try again on another day to confirm this.
Just a cute little face

Don't get me wrong, this is a great car in excellent condition and really fun to drive but we are just ready for a more practical sedan type car. Here is the craigslist listing if you or anyone you know might be interested.

Apparently neither of them wanted their picture taken.
Even though this smile wasn't intentional it's still cute. I am sure he just had gas.
Gran knows how to get Mason to sleep too. This was during the thunderstorm last week and the dogs were scared too.
Gran not only takes care of Mason but she brushes Lucy's teeth too. This grandmother does it all!
