day twenty-one: multi-blogging

Tonight in my Instructional Psych and Tech class we got the assignment to create a blog that will stand as our PLE (personal learning environment)for the semester. We talked about RSS feeds, design and purpose. It was great to know that I already have been in that realm so I wasn't too intimidated. Now I just want to make sure I make it a place where I can keep track of new ideas and knowledge that I gain over my licensing experience during this next year. I am excited about it.

I got a new cub scout tonight that struggled all evening with sportsmanship as we played a soccer game. I had zero minutes to change my clothes after work and school, so there I was, in my skirt, barefoot, with my shoes being used to mark one of the goals, running around playing with these ten year-old boys. It was what I needed after a crazy day running around meeting deadlines, doing assignments, etc. And by the end my little poor sport was starting to snap out of it. Phew.

review of my day:
play basketball
shower and run to schools to pull out my boys
come home and watch Pres Obama speech with boys and Geo, four of us cuddled on the couch
get kids back to school
go to work
pick up boy #4 for cello
head to classes
hurry home for 40 minutes
make quesadillas for me and the kids
run to cub scouts
home to do my homework
show up here...

That's cool that you watched the speech at home with your family.

Also, even though I blog, if I was in the class you're taking I'd be in WAY over my head with that assignment. I don't even know what an RSS feed is!

Your hair is adorable!

I can just imagine you running around playing soccer in your skirt. You are so much fun, and I'm sure the scouts loved it!

You are busier than any woman I know! You're an inspiration. That's admirable that you listened to the Pres. speech with your boys.

Cub Scouts for me is one hour a week where I do what you do every day. We have several special needs boys but most of their issues skew toward behavioral challenges and I wear myself out dreading it every week and then powering through it on Fridays. I'm trying to find a better attitude, but it's soooo hard.

You cut your hair again! It is cute and reminds me of when I knew you 25 years ago!

Camille | September 9, 2009 at 3:01 PM

Wow! I love the hair cut! I don't remember it being that short when you were over for the mission homecoming...

Love, love, love the hair!

And reading about your day is mildly exhausting - wow!
