Percy Hoff Soccer Pitch Curriculum Connections When evaluating the Physical Education curriculum for Grade 8, the outcome that stands out is 8.14 History & Culture Analyze the influences of past and present social, cultural, and environmental perspectives on the need for recent physical movement initiatives (e.g., in motion, ParticipAction, Indigenous Games, walking paths) that support […]
This is all my fault. In the last week of January, I took my wife and kids to Hawaii with another couple (a firefighting friend from Vancouver) and their kid. While there, my friend and I visited Honolulu Fire Hall #11 – an extraordinary place. Once we had explained who we were and where we […]
My girls and I just got home a few days ago from a great trip to the PNW. My brother lives in a suburb of Seattle, and that whole area is one of my absolute faves. For Christmas and their birthday, he bought them flights to visit him, and because it was cheaper to buy […]
While you could throw some of these fashion items on your Valentine’s Day wish list, isn’t it more fun to shop for yourself? This way, you know exactly what you’re ordering, and you don’t end up with the wrong size cargo pants or a turtleneck sweater that’s maybe not your best color. We’re letting you […]
Fine, warm west Plenty of dry weather Fine and warm in most of western Europe, dry for most Sunday Western Europe continues to bask in early spring warmth. Highest temperatures will be toward western and Spain, 25C in places, whilst southwest France will also nudge 20C. Cooler for eastern Spain and the Balerics as an […]
Captions Painting my favorite locations helps me immortalize the feelings I experience while there. This spot feels like home for me and always fills my soul with joy. Do you have a favorite place? #nature #getOutside #myFavoritePlace #art #watercolor #trees Spring is on its way, but not before this blizzard has its way with […]
The next quilt block is “Going Around the Mountain”. It is supposed to look like squares radiating out to the edge. I intentionally changed it up to be “Courthouse Steps”. I love this block. The foundation paper pattern was not changed, just the fabric placement. Ideally the colors would’ve progressed from the lightest tan to […]
Saturday February 23, 2019 Day Eleven I never got around to blogging for yesterday for day ten. It was a low-key day. The kids and I were home in the new ski house for most of it. The name of the new house is Craig’s Sky. I found myself feeling a little homesick for the […]
Tonight I am under new ownership, although it almost didn’t happen. We had a significant snowstorm last night — flights canceled in Denver and here in the Springs because the intensity of the snowfall was too heavy at times. While it had stopped snowing this morning, it seemed the snow-packed roads would postpone the meeting […]
This is a poem that I just wrote about somebody experiencing new highs and lows simultaneously, and how they have said so much that they, for once, are at a loss of what to say.
The first indication that this day wasn’t going to go my way was when some soup I was heating in the microwave erupted in a fountain at literally the last second, completely coating my microwave in the process. I have a tendency to sleep during the day and rise at night. I had just come […]
Last winter, I saw this recipe on Joy The Baker’s blog. It is beautiful and looked so bright and cozy all at the same time. In the winter with the dreary days, that’s exactly what I crave. The very next day we woke up to a white morning with snow continuing to fall. Of course […]
When I first talked to my agent as an agent, meaning about the possibility of working together, rather than just saying hello at some convention where we were both appearing on panels, he asked me whether I would ever write under a pseudonym. I said no. And I don’t think I would, although one can […]
Hello Readers, Thanks for tuning in! Today I started my day at the barn by taking one of the border’s horses on a hack down the road. The sun was pretty warm and the snow appeared to be melting before my very eyes, a true sight to bring joy to my heart. After I had […]
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz declared a state of emergency Saturday night in Freeborn and Steele counties to assist stranded motorists.
