Watching the drum performance at the beginning of the opening ceremony...
Me: Isn't that awesome? There's 2008 drummers and they're all moving together. When the camera moves back it looks like 3D art.
E2: Yeah, but when is it going to start? When are they going to start flipping and stuff?
Me: Flipping? You mean the gymnastics? There are no Olympic events tonight. This is the opening ceremony; celebrating the start of the Olympic games. It's a big show of Chinese culture welcoming all the athletes to China.
E2: So, no gymnastics?
We had to leave for the school's summer reading program pool party less than an hour into the program, and I still haven't watched the recording but I can't wait.
Tonight, watching women's gymnastics, E2 has declared her intent to be in the Olympics. Do they need to be 16 to compete? That means the summer games of 2020 will be the earliest she's eligible. She'd miss the 2016 games by about a month.
