#SOL19 – Day 31 – A Reflection of Writing

Well, we did, didn't we!?! 31 days of writing. 31 days of noticing the little things. 31 days of noticing emotions. 31 days of being in the moment. #31daysofcomplainingfrommystudents As I looked back at the past three years of "Day 31"... Continue Reading →

#SOL19 – Day 7 – My Introduction

As I'm featured on the Two Writing Teachers on today's "Call for Slices" for Day 7 (*little boy scream*), I figured today is as good as any to the introduction that SHOULD have happened on Day 1. #getwiththeprogram I am:... Continue Reading →

#SOL18 – Day 31 – A Final Slice

#ugh I've written this twice, first a pretty pessimistic piece, and we'll try the positive side and see which one goes up. It's hard to describe this year's slicing. On one hand, my scheduling of posts was horrible. I missed... Continue Reading →

#SOL18 – Day 30 – Hope

One more post about Washington D.C. and I promise I'm done. I've been here three times: once a Boy Scout in 1985(ish), once we drove out with our 6 and 4 year old daughters. We camped for a night outside... Continue Reading →

#SOL18 – Day 28 – Black Light Dodgeball

#SOL18 – Day 25 – Random Stuff

Today, we found out our pastor was being transfered to a town north of us. I'm not an especially religious person, and have connected with exactly three pastors in my life time: Pastor Jim, Pastor Arley, and now Pastor Mee.... Continue Reading →

#SOL18 – Day 24 – 10 Facts About Me

I saw this posted yesterday as the thing to do, so while I'm a day late (pretty typical for me) it looked like a fun way to get myself thinking! So without further ado: I'm a basketball junkie. No mystery... Continue Reading →

#SOL18 – Day 19 – Sorry

I thought I could do it. I thought I could get a blog in during days of 17 hours in a bus, days beginning with a 5:35 wake up call and ending with a chaperone's meeting at 10:30. I thought... Continue Reading →
