Are we ready for a weekend? What a week in our country. Thank you to the competitors in the Olympics to make our hearts swell with pride. Colorado sent the largest number of Olympic athletes to South Korea. So we have been cheering from our family room every night. The Olympics is all about family support.
When Red Gerard won the first gold medal for the Americans, after oversleeping before the slopestyle snowboard event, we laughed at his chill attitude. He is the same age as one of my boys. His family joined him for the celebrations following his win.
Let’s just say only his mom and dad got up for pre-dawn bus drive up the mountain for the next day’s events.
And, can we talk about Nathan Chen’s performance in the free skate program. He is just too cute.
I had to share his pre-Olympic commercial.
And, I love the athlete commercials. Here is a favorite because I love the song that is paired with skating favorite Nathan Chen. It’s all about the journey. I would love to see him skate to more music like the one in this video filmed last summer.
Finally, for those of you of a certain age, you might remember Scott Hamilton. Check out the amazing things he is doing outside of Nashville. Loved this interview with Craig Melvin.
When Scott Hamilton was skating I was roller skating in my garage and twirling around the support beam in the center of my “rink.” Do any of you remember Ice Castles?
Happy Day! Give your children extra hugs, texts, and love! We all have a champion in our lives.
