Hello Everyone!

Well its now Sunday and the Opening Ceremony was Friday. … Oh my gosh, did my dreams come true! Walking through that tunnel and being called out as our country! Oh my word! I couldn’t even sleep that night because I couldn’t believe that one of my lifetime dreams had just come true! It was just amazing! I think my heart was racing as if I was going to the starting line! It was just something that made me think that I may go for another 4four years! That feeling was just that amazing, I would do anything to go through that again! I have some pictures just to show how amazing it really was! (: So please enjoy as much as I did! ahhhhh!!
