It's our third experience at an Olympic Games and it never gets old. We are still excited to check out all the village has to offer and to practice on the fields right next to our venue. The fields are beautiful and the setting next to the water is such a pretty sight. Practice has been keeping us busy- we have two hours to practice on the fields but we try to squeeze 3-4 hours of work into that amount of time. We're fine tuning all the little things at this point and look forward to our first game in a few days. Time has been flying by- we've been here for almost two weeks now and it feels like we just arrived. 

Hi everyone it's me Laura :-) Everything is going great here. The village is huge. There are buses in the village to takes us to different parts of the village. We have to remember not to walk in front of the bus because they will not stop. It's awesome to see all the different flags around the village. Our practices are going great. We practice on the practice fields next to the main stadium. It's inspiring to see the main stadium while we are practicing. We scrimmaged the other day and let me add I'm glad our pitchers are on my team. We are having a blast practicing but we are ready for the Games to start. Okay it's time to go.
