I have a undergraduate degree in Secondary English Education and a Master's degree in Education. I enjoyed sharing my love for reading and writing with kids for the three years that I taught high school English, but the politics and other BS were more than I could handle, so I chose to explore other opportunities outside of education...
Writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.
I just like to speak on paper. After leaving teaching, I went from being consumed with reading and writing most of my days to very little of both. And then came Mia and then I stopped reading and stopped writing all together.
Through a recommendation of my cousin, I started blogging in 2009.
I never thought that blogging would provide the connections and believe it or not friendships that it has provided for me.
Through blogging and Twitter, Gina and I figured out that we lived in the same city at a time when I was exploring a new gym to join. Ms. Namaste herself encouraged me to join her gym and boom, that's how we met.
And through that relationship, I met (well I should say virtually met her via the internet, not in actual human form) Lindsey.
Since they are both teachers, they have a bit more flexibility with their schedules in the summer and had made several mentions of trying to get together for a day at the zoo with our kids. As I've mentioned before our zoo here in the Lou is a amazing.
So we figured it out.
Last Friday we met up for a day of F U N!
All of the kids were so cute together and it was a great day to get to know these women even better.

|We tried at a group shot, but I kind of like this one better.|

|Trying to keep all the kids out of the water.|
|Choo Choo Taaaaain, in the words of C man himself.|
|We ended the day with a little body art.|
|Girlfriend fell right to sleep.|
|Her pick - the Pink Kitty - meeeeow.|
|Getting picture ready for sending a text to Dadda.|
|Night night kitty.|
It's amazing how something can become something you never expected.
