The final tallies are in, medal counts shared and programming has returned to normal. The Winter Olympics are over and I’m a little sorry. I didn’t watch much of the games but would listen as my teen kept me up to date with figure skating, Shaun White and snow boarding and a new desire to learn to ski. She keeps talking about what it would be like to have the world’s eyes watching as one performed and I was reminded that track season starts soon and once agin we would be caught up in the whirlwind of meets, practice and working hard.
As the snow clears and the weather still tries to figure out what it wants to do (snow…warm up…ice…oh my!) here are a few movies and television shows streaming on Netflix to share with the young athletes in your life.
