Lake Placid, NY
This photo was taken of me in Lake Placid, in the summer of 2012. I was very serious as I sat on the red metal pondering the history of Lake Placid and the 2 Olympics that were held here in 1932 and 1980.
I was also wondering what it would be like to be in the Olympics...
...On a Bobsled Team!
As you can (barely) see, I'm not sitting in the proper part of the bobsled. And the bobsled is sitting on a sidewalk, not sitting on the snow.
Even though I'm not in Russia at the Olympics today, I've been watching the bobsleds on TV. I found a helmet and I've been practicing.
It helps to have friends who own a bobsled. Sometimes I'm extra daring and go helmet-free, so I can feel the wind in my face. It's going to be near 80 degrees today in Houston today!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
