It's Showtime!

Good morning, it is Monday.

We had quite a busy weekend.  Pickleball, graduation parties, birthday parties, church picnics, shopping, and watching the Olympics.  I enjoyed the opening ceremonies but am amazed that in today's world that NBC censored out the tribute to the London terrorism victims and instead played a dumb interview with Seacrest/Phelps.  If you google it, you can find the 6 minute tribute that was the segue between the opening ceremonies and the walk of nations.  I've put the censored out part on the bottom of this page if you want to see it.  But back to my blog.

Speaking of putting on shows, Lillie and the neighborhood girls have been putting on shows for the neighborhood!  Dancing shows.
Performing their show to some of the parents and grandparents of the neighbors.  And if you're feeling left out because you didn't get the see the show, I did catch one song from a rehearsal show, which may have not as polished as the one with the seating, and it missing the half to the song What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger.  But I will show it to you here (it is cute!):

You may need to double click to get the whole screen?

And here is the part of the opening ceremonies that NBC covered in it's telecast with the Seacrest/Phelps interview:

See you tomorrow.

I definitely think it would have been better to leave the tribute in. It was very moving. I've often been a critic of American Olympic coverage during the years for being too American-centered and not showing the national anthems of other countries.

As for Lillie and her friend dancing - Wow! - they did a great job! More entertaining than most of what's on TV, I have to say! And what good exercise, too!

Aurora loved the video - she sang along and kept talking about how pretty Lillie's outfit is.
