Go Canada!!

The Olympic Torch was relayed through our city today - and, as part of my job as an EA, I got to go watch!! Our grades 5&6's actually went to the whole ceremony thing early in the day but the younger grades got to walk about 4 blocks to Main St. to see the torch run through town. Although it was small and quick...it was nonetheless impressive and I was glad to have seen it! I'm pretty sure none of the kids even got it - that they may never see this again - especially in our city.

ETA: One of the radio station guys got this picture of Mica and her friends at the ceremonies early this morning. I think they were all a little buzzed from all the freebies (RBC tambourines, Canada Olympic flags, commemorative Visa cards, travel mugs full of hot chocolate and Coke in these cool aluminum bottles).
