Cool Olympic stuff

One of my extended family members was honored today in England with being an Olympic torch bearer. He has always been very active in his community, and puts in more volunteer hours than many people work.

There were crowds of people who come out to see the torch pass, a local kids band was playing - and really cool - each torch bearer gets to keep their torch.

His health hasn't been the best so he was permitted to walk rather than run, and they only get about 1/4 of a mile each, as they try to give as many people as possible the opportunity to do it.

Anyway, here are some pics.







And my beautiful Momma. :)

Wow

Someone from my school got to run with the torch, and loads of my friends took a day off school to see it go though our town (but I couldn't go because I had an exam on )

It's not long to go now!
