One advantage of being with small children all day is finding the joy in the small things again. With no meetings to get to and a schedule all our own we are able to take time to explore the things that make them smile. ... Big mom-ing wins are often found in the little things.

I have always been a runner. When I was a baby my dad, also a runner, would push me on runs and races in the stroller. Back then they didn't have the fancy jogging strollers we have now and I've been told that he and I wore out several strollers with all the miles we did. I don't have any memory of those runs, but I've seen the pictures.

I'm dividing up our commentary based on the time zone I'm in because it's my blog and that makes the most sense to me. That means Amanda starts it off while I'm asleep and then I catch up and then she goes to sleep and then we end the day together. It's weird but it works. Here's our commentary from February 10th and 11th.

The interesting thing about our commentary this year is the time zone difference. Amanda watched the Opening Ceremonies over twelve hours before I did. So she and Blake (her mixed doubles partner) made their comments. And then hours later I watched it with my team and made my comments and replied to a lot of hers. Just sort it out best you can.

Nope. Not excited or anything. Just totally looking forward to them again and plan to have them on as much as possible during my awake hours. In this post: events I'm looking forward to, a look back at the last Olympics from Shimri's perspective, and the start of Amanda's and my commentary.

Last year on February 2nd I thought it would be fun to do shadow puppets with the kids to celebrate Groundhog Day, but not last year because I hadn't thought of it soon enough. So I put that thought away for later.

About two weeks ago I remembered that thought and had a second thought. I knew it would be fun to do with our kids, but I also knew that Iddo loves getting together with her friends so I suggested to her that we invite some of her friends over and we have a Groundhog Day party. Because why not. She LOVED the idea and was so excited. She started counting down till Groundhog Day. Nobody has ever looked forward to Groundhog Day more than she did this year.

Last night before bed I took them all outside our front door and we looked up at the giant super moon that was big and bright in the sky. We told them it was a blue moon but they all agreed it actually looked white. ... At 6:00 this morning (normal wake up time at our house is 8am) I picked up each of them out of their bed one at a time and took them into the backyard so they could see the moon in a total eclipse, and then they all went back to sleep.

I needed a sixth red satin stocking, made out of red satin from a store that doesn't exist any more. I could order a swatch to see if the red satin matched for $2 plus shipping, or I could throw caution to the wind and buy a whole yard for $5 plus shipping. I bought the yard. The package arrived and I nervously opened it up. I pulled it out. It was definitely the right type of fabric. I got my scraps out to compare the color.

I took down our Christmas tree today and Brett, referencing "The Forgotten Carols" asked if I cry every time I take it down. I told him I've only cried taking the tree down once, and that was January 2012.

Today was Iddo's second race. She was super excited to get to do another one. We've spent the last 11 months trying to help her understand that they didn't retire her bib number from her first race (#367) and that won't be her bib number from here on out and forever. She didn't see why she needed a new bib when she already had one taped to the back of her door. ... I was so proud of her! She's a true runner. ... My own race went great.
