Two Gs and me: Day 9

Day 9:
G1 was a bit embarrassed but let me take her picture before camp this morning.

Hey guess what? Today was full of adventure, challenges, and fun, but perhaps a bit more tame than yesterday.  The blog is up a bit late today because our power flickered briefly and for some reason, one of my routers decided to stop working correctly. 2 hours later, I have patched together a setup that should work.

Both G1 and G2 got up right on time, and while they were both eating breakfast, I decided to keep G2 home from day camp. After yesterday's events, I thought it would be best if G2 had a break and maybe had a chance to fully recover. The only problem was that I had scheduled interviews for a position we have open at work for the afternoon. I wasn't sure who to contact on such short notice so I texted Sarah, who wasn't feeling too good either. So, I decided to pack up G2's stuff, including a lunch, and took her into work with me. She was doing OK when Sarah was able to watch her after all. I'm thankful for that.

After roughly 3 hours of interviews, it was finally time to go home and see how G2 was feeling. It was immediately apparent that she was back to 100%. Shortly after getting home, it was time to go pick up G1 from camp and then it would be on to Grandma and Grandpa's house for dinner. I visited with the camp director briefly while picking up G1 and he had nothing but nice things to say about G1. He said "She's a very patient girl," which made my heart swell. I'm so thankful and proud of G1. She's been a huge help throughout this entire adventure and she is very patient with her little sister. After dinner, the girls ate some treats and played a little bit and I took some time to go across the alley to help my aunt with her computer woes.

Puzzles with Grandma

Once we got home, it was bath time again, albeit later than usual. I also let the girls eat the pudding G1 had made at Grandma's the night before. The girls loved that treat. After eating her pudding, G2 was rocking a sweet pudding stache. We brushed teeth, and proceeded to bed. I thought G2's prayer before bed was pretty indicative of how she's feeling these days: "I pray... momma... eh-pane (Airplane)... & momma eh-pane... & 5 minute momma eh-pane ... momma & momma." Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel too G2.
Pudding-stache lol She thought I was admiring her iPad Barbie Movie.

My Homework for Dean Shareski @shareski

1. How do you feel about pants?
On a seasonal and situational basis, I am a fan of pants. Further, my pet peeve is when people think outdated, or ill fitting "slacks" or "khakis" are more appropriate than stylish jeans.

2. What was the last movie you saw in a theatre?
"Frozen" with my family. We rarely get to go to a theatre, so this was special. It was cold outside, and it is a holiday tradition for us so it was a wonderful time. I highly recommend the movie to anyone. Great music, effects, and message.

3. Where are your car keys?
In my right vest pocket. I'm in a meeting and it's not warm in this room.

4. What time is it?
11:22AM Pacific Time

5. What’s the last tweet you favorited?
Moss Pike @mosspike
+1 #Google #eduGeek RT @msvalois: It's official. #google has changed my life! Amazingness! I am in love. #gafesummit

My in-laws. Seriously, they are incredible peopl…

How I Grew My Twitter PLN Without Even Knowing It

So far 2013 has been quite a journey for me, both personally and professionally. But in the context of this blog, I'm going to focus on the professional/career side of things. (But hey, if you are interested in the personal side of things, my wife and I have a blog here.)
In my tenure as a Technology Coordinator, I've been to a few educational technology conferences such as NCCE and IETA, but due to several circumstances over the last few years, I have not attended many such events. Before January of 2013, I had not attended a conference in roughly 3 years, just long enough to believe I wasn't missing anything important. Boy was I mistaken!
Thankfully in January I attended my state educational technology conference in Boise. Little did I know it would be an event that would re-ignite and invigorate my energy to learn more about EdTech and reflect and evaluate all areas of how we do things in my district. The sessions at the IETA 2013 Conference were fantastic, but I'd …

PLN: Professional and Personal

A while ago, I blogged about my family, and shared it on my social media communities. Because it was family/personal in nature, I naturally expected more feedback and interaction from some networks such as Facebook, because they tend to be more "casual" or  "family" focused than some of my others like Twitter and Google+. Much to my surprise, a few individuals, who I know primarily through connections made in the Ed-Tech-sphere, read my blog, and commented. I was grateful, and moved that they took the time to not only read my post(s) which for the past 6+ months, have been predominantly family focused and more personal than professional, but they also replied and offered sincere words of encouragement. During one such interaction (on Twitter) I found myself apologizing for the nature of my most recent blog posts, because they were not "Ed Tech" focused. My gut level explanation was that this was "just where I am right now." These and similar ex…
