Merry Christmas

Do you want to build a Snowman?

My favorite moment in twelve years as a coach did not happen on a field.  It took place on a cold fall morning as I got to experience sunrise at the Grand Canyon with nine of my athletes.  The collective gasp and silence from a group of guys, known to talk nonstop, as they soaked …

Trick-or-treat: Our Halloween Costumes


Another wonderful Halloween has passed and we definitely made the most of it.  This year little Miss McKenna requested to be Tinkerbell and the rest of us sort of fell into place.  Initially we thought Kenny would be Captain Hook, but being our only boy we kind of needed a Peter Pan and happily agreed …

Teaching Tip: Student Feud

Survey Says

I am always looking to come up with a new study game for the students to use.  After 12 years of teaching the same subject a little variety becomes the spice of life.  Jeopardy is an oldie but goodie though it has been done to death.   I have used 1 vs class to some success.  …

McKayla’s Cake Smash

How is it possible that our second tiny baby is already a whole year old!?!  We are so in love with our sweet spunky little McKayla girl (well, both our girls actually).  She is a charmer and always quick to have a toothy little grin on her face.  It is fun to watch her explore …
