Healthy Kid - Busy Kid - PTL!
Last Thursday night, Shayla finished her second basketball league's games. She learned a lot this year.
She was on the "purple team", #3.
Wow! This poet/author, from New Orleans, was amazing Saturday at BGSU! Shay and I had a great day on campus. Some of my wonderful students were there! The amazing event was worked by our early childhood education majors and our reading GAs.
That night we took Shay and a sweet friend to see "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid". It was wonderful, absolutely perfect for these two girls soon to enter middle school and also for me - a teacher educator of middle school teachers.
I'm not able to get the little video clip of Shayla introducing Brod to load, but I thought she did a great job (bias mom, of course!). (Funny thing: She couldn't remember his last name so she decided not to say it and she soon learned that Brod could not remember her name either!)
Last night, Shayla presented to the Tiffin City School board about the distance learning / exchange they did with the fifth graders in London, England.
It was a great experience for her. As a fifth grader I never would have had the courage to speak in front of a panel of adults (with microphones in front of them) and with the local cable TV news there filming too - yikes! She was fine.
I had a most wonderful lunch today with Jennifer (Kids Cancer Crusade). What a delight she is and what a remarkable person too. I can't believe she will be a pediatric oncology nurse very soon. When we stood outside the education building on campus today saying our goodbyes, she invited us to her pinning. She said, "The reason I am going to be a nurse is because of your family." It was all I could do not to choke up. Oh, we actually have other plans that day, but I'm going to see what I can do. That was really moving. I walked to my car with tears streaming down my face. What a sweetie! I know she misses Christi too.
