Well folks, I’ve just wiped the last of the tears away after watching the Paralympic closing ceremonies from Whistler. I didn’t think I’d get so emotional at the end of these games but with working in the athlete’s village, I have felt a real connection to the athletes of these games. Also, our family partook in so many more events during the Paralympics so I’m sure that had something to do with it too.
I thought I’d take a few minutes to share some of my memories with you all….
This photo was taken outside the bus entrance to the Vancouver Paralympic Village (where the athletes for sledge hockey and wheelchair curling lived). It was my first day and I was so excited by pretty much anything I saw!
This was taken inside the village – look at those Canadian flags – that is where the Canadian team was staying! Each country would hang their flags on their balconies, it looked so cool!
I took an extra volunteer shift to work the Opening Ceremonies – and this was my vantage point! Here is team Canada entering the building.
Here is my dear hubby up at Whistler trying out a sit ski while we watched some slalom racing.
I have so many photos that it would take a week of posts to get them all up to view! I’ll probably put up a few more……
