I wrote it sort of last minute last week, knowing it would be my only chance to have a piece on the Olympics post at CatholicMom while the Olympics were actually going on, and I only have so many words I’m allowed, so you’ll see that now, after another week of Olympics and the awesome conversation we’ve had here on Olympic names since then, it feels a little … rudimentary? But it was fun to write, and I’m glad it’s out there. (And thanks to my new Twitter friend Annie Au for the use of her tweet!)
I was going to include in this post all sorts of new info I’ve found about Catholic Olympians and Olympic names with Catholic connections (I’ve been saving links to share for a week!) but my kids are Falling Apart after a morning of me trying to get stuff done, and it’s the only nice weather day predicted for the week, so I made the executive decision to drop everything and haul us all up to the lake. I’m very sorry to not have the time to do the post I’d wanted to do! And I know I have emails awaiting responses as well, and I’m hoping to get all caught up again soon. I know you know how it is, with childhood being too short and summer being too short and all of that. 🌞🌞🌞
I hope you all have a great Wednesday, and if you have any links to share about Catholic Olympians or other thoughts on this topic, please feel free to leave them in the comments!
