First Olympic event is curling, aka Curls for the Girls X 18 IC.
Next Event – Bobsled – aka sprint across the field, hop in your “bobsled” and do 18 BBSU. Repeat each time YHC yells “Bobsled!” The first few times were cold and wet until we found the drier grass!
Up next the Luge – aka The Lunge – lunge back across the field.
Rinse & Repeat Curling X 18 IC
“Speed” skating – grab your block. Take one step forward to the left. Squat with your block. Take one step forward to the right. Squat. Rinse and repeat all the way across the field.
Next up the Skeleton, aka Plank for 1 minute or so. Did you know that the world record for planking is over 5 hours?
Next up Downhill skiing – aka People’s Chair – periodically leaning to the left and then to the right as if downhill skiing.

“ ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ “
Gratitude Continued – this year I am continue to focus on gratitude for the blessings I have. It’s still a struggle sometimes to be grateful. It helps to remember that God has a plan for each of us, especially when we are going through difficult times. God can use what we perceive as difficulties to develop us and make us stronger.
