The continuing adventures of an 8-year-old at her first Olympics


Saturday night at dinner I met three speed skaters from Japan, Shigeyuki Dejima (at left) Shingo Doi and Hiroki Hirako, they were very nice and Shingo even put his official Team Japan Olympic jacket on me. If they are reading this, thank you!

I'm beginning to miss my sisters and my dog, but it is still fun here. The people are nice. You can hear them singing outside our hotel every night. I heard the national anthem of Canada and France last night, as people are so happy just walking around.

I want to say hi to my uncles, David, John and Joe, Aunt Lorena, Michelle and Teresa and to my cousins Robert, Bella and Sofia.

Hi Hannah ~
How is it going at the Olympics? I can't wait until you come home. I got a hair cut and now I have bangs, it looks kind of like yours. I'm watching the Olympics right now and I'm looking for you in the stands. I hope you are having fun. I wish I was there with you, I miss you so much! See you when you get home.
