I Already Have the Olympic Spirit

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Sorry I missed you yesterday, Mom said the day just slipped away from her… she promised me that slipped away did not equal procrastination (vocab builder).  Hmmm…

Anyway, here at Casa Jet, we LOVE the Olympics.  Koko, Mom and I enjoyed the Winter Olympics in 2010 together and now JJ, Mom and I will enjoy our first Summer Olympics together.  With permission, I must divulge (vocab builder) Mom gets misty-eyed during opening ceremonies when all the countries march into Olympic Stadium.  She asked me to share with the humans that she majored in history, international development and political science in college many moons ago.  Readers of my blog know she likes spectator sports, so the combination gives insight into her enjoyment of this worldwide spectacle.

We watched Miss Oprah’s Olympic Superstar episode this week.  All of the athletes interviewed stated they wanted to attain the ultimate level of excellence.  Miss Mary Lou said that everyone competing already achieved excellence before arriving; the difference between medaling and not came down to mental toughness and passion on that particular day.

I work on attaining excellence (with Mom of course) for my blog.  I do not compete with other blogs, rather I learn and grow from their excellence.  Without my blog, I would never have the opportunity to meet the following anipals representing their fine nations:

If we’ve missed some anipals, we apologize ahead of time, write in and let us know, we’ll edit immediately!

Another great, Olympic spirit, day.
