Oh, hey there.

Yep, it's been a week since I've blogged. And not necessarily because I've been crazy busy -- I've just been kinda lazy.  Season 3 of Downton Abbey became available for free last week (for Amazon Prime subscribers), so since then, I've watched seven episodes.  In between that, we've been doing our usual -- going outside, practicing our reading, playing around the house. I've only been doing the bare minimum for cleaning the past week (dishes, laundry, the necessary stuff), so everything else has fallen by the wayside. I'll make up for lost time cleaning sometime this week.

On a different note, M had a huge turnaround in swim lessons recently.  I'm proud of her.  I'll be posting a video soon.

And on another note, we recently took M to her first cave visit.  I was a little worried she'd get down there and freak out.  And she DID say something on the way down into the cave that made me believe we were in for a little drama.  Check back later this week to see how it went.

In the meantime, I've got WORK on the brain. Yesterday I attended the training for a new course we're teaching in the fall. I'm REALLY excited about it. I'm about to go through the notes I took and get some things together. Organize my thoughts, so to speak...

Later this week, I'll be visiting our state's Honda manufacturing facility with a group of educators to explore and discuss business, economics, technology, and promotion of our local economy. I'm excited about this for many reasons -- one being that it includes a tour of the plant.  I've always wondered what it looked like inside this facility (everyone wears all white, which makes me think the place is this crazy kind of clean), and how vehicle manufacturing looks in general (this facility makes Honda minivans, SUVs, and pickup trucks). I actually have an aunt, uncle, and cousin who work at this facility; unfortunately, neither of them will be there at the time of my visit (boooo). I'm also looking forward to this because of all the real-world concepts, discussions, and experiences I can take back to my classroom -- particularly my Management class.  Unlike the freshman course I teach, Management touches on every aspect of business.  These students are being taught to understand and apply more advanced concepts in business, which means they'll understand and appreciate the things I bring back from the Honda experience.


...I've included these pictures today specifically for my DAD.  He called me a couple of weeks ago and scolded me about a picture on my blog -- how my child wasn't wearing elbow and knee pads while she was skating. Ooops - who knew she needed more than a helmet.  My bad, Dad! :-)

Hope everyone has a good week!  Check back again tomorrow or Thursday.  I'm gonna try not to go another week before posting again. :-)
