The slogan for the London 2012 Olympics is: Inspire a Generation. Here are some of the kids I’ve seen partaking in the events.
It’s wonderful to see the kids having fun and the last photo shows that having fun can be exhausting.
TB Markinson is an American who's recently returned to the US after a seven-year stint in the UK and Ireland. When she isn't writing, she's traveling the world, watching sports on the telly, visiting pubs in New England, or reading. Not necessarily in that order.
Her novels have hit Amazon bestseller lists for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.
She cohosts the Lesbians Who Write Podcast (lesbianswhowrite.com) with Clare Lydon. TB also runs I Heart Lesfic (iheartlesfic.com), a place for authors and fans of lesfic to come together to celebrate lesbian fiction.

Love the theme and how your photos reflect it. Thanks again for showing scenes from the Olympics we don’t see on TV.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I’m happy that you’re enjoying the photos.
Oh to be young in this modern day!! After all, what did we have. IOW festival plus many othe scattered. Woodstock all be it in America. Hippies and drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll. we no argument.. 😉 love it thanks.
I feel for kids in today’s world. They grow up so fast and have to deal with so much more than I did when I was a kid. I was allowed to be a kid and didn’t have to worry about guns and violence at school.
They must be having a ball
I hope so!
how fun for the kids and their folks! What lifetime memories they will have of this special time. what lifetime memories we are all getting from this special time!
It is wonderful how the games bring us all together.
What an experience! Hopefully they are old enough to remember when the Olympics came to town.
I hope they never forget this exciting time. The parents are taking tons of photos. It is hard to tell who is more excited: the kids or parents. It’s such a joy to witness.
My girls are all into the swimming and gymnastics. We have our own swim competitions in the pool every day… and they sleep like babies every night!!! 🙂
I bet they do. Good for them!

I am going to use your post for SPORTS if you don’t mind
Havong fun is indeed exhasuting – I speak from personal experience this week!
Sounds like you are having fun!
I have a four year-old, and he inspires me and exhausts me at the same time! So I can relate.
I bet. I don’t have kids so when I’m around them I’m always amazed by their energy and curiosity.
I think we can always learn something from their zest for life. I think photographing children is always fun.
I love to take pictures of kids, but they move around so much sometimes it’s difficult 🙂
That’s definitely true. I think taking pictures of youngsters can be the most challenging form of photography because they are so frenetic. But for that same reason, it’s also one of the best ways to get better as a photographer. I have learned much photographing my little guy.
Such a cool experience for kids – even for the one in the last photo who is tuckered out for now! Nice captures! There’s a kid in us adults, also (at least there’s one in me)!
I agree with you. I still feel like a kid and I think it helps keep us young.
Great shots! Are you really there? In London?
Yes. We moved to London last Autumn and we’re loving it.
great idea! Love the slogan, and kids getting active. They spend too much in front of computers and tv’s these days.
I agree with you. When I was little, we played outside all of the time.
Yes, we only ever went inside to eat! And even then we sometimes had to be prompted. 🙂
Same here! I loved being outside.
Yes, this should be great fun for now but in the future, what amazing experience and memories will be for them. They are lucky children… Thank you dear TBM, love, nia
It’s fun to watch them enjoying themselves.
It is all about the children!! Love it 🙂
Kids know how to appreciate life.
