So there were only 10 athletes competing for Luxembourg? That is a good number for such a small country.:p Thank you drimal for all the photos. I especially loved the pictures of them altogether as a family. :)

I'm not sure if this pic has been posted before - I hope not :) It has the whole family!!!

I actually laugh when I see that photo because they're all looking in different directions, and it's like, surely the athletes they're watching are in the same spot. They look like they're watching a Quidditch match...
