Hippy the Olympian

Abby says:
"Mom, did you know that back in the old days when Hippy was 5 he was in the Olympics? He won the gold medal for LUGING (emphasis on that word). That's when you ride on your back so fast down a track. He also won a medal for ice-skating. When it was over Hippy got to go home with his parents. That was the year they were in Hanover County."

What's your name?

Cute story. My kids both love the show Super WHY! on PBS kids. Andrew in particular will REALLY tune in when it's on. When the "super readers" introduce themselves, they ask the viewers "what's your name?" Of course, Abby always shouts "ABBY!". I noticed yesterday when Abby was at school that Andrew answers too...he says "ABBY!" I thought it was so cute!
