February 14/15 – Post Valentine’s Day …

What an exciting Valentine’s Day.  Emotions Week at Heritage Woods was a great event.  So much enthusiasm and participation from the student body.  Today’s assembly went well.  There were well over 1400+ students/teachers in the gym.  Assemblies at the high school level are pretty rare occurrences due to timetabling and sports scheduling.  But it happened today.  There was a great PSA that was made by students.  I managed to speak.  I might have rambled on but there were many messages to be had.  They showed ‘Wonder Woman’.  I loved meeting with the kids after.  There were so many kids with positive messages.

Had a surprise guest too.  A few months ago, I connected with the niece of someone Rob worked with.  This girl was in town for the week with her dad.  She wanted to meet me for coffee and I suggested she come to the school for the assembly.  She did make it and sat in on the assembly.  I am so glad she did.  Before she left us, we gave her bracelets to take back to give to her school friends.  More to share!!

T-shirt design votes are coming in.  It’s all very interesting to see everyone’s opinions.  Just getting a variety of quotes for screening now.  It’s amazing how prices can be so different.

I really do have to start writing my thoughts down earlier.  At this time of the morning, I am so tired that I can’t even think right.  That is the case right now.  I am tired and have to sleep.

Here are some tender issues for the next write:

  • comments about the ‘don’t flash your boobs’ blog post
  • teenagers who care
  • What is the opposite of the word ‘bullying’?
  • YPI
  • Schools and teaches that care
  • brain drain

So sorry… I so have to sleep right now.  Nothing is working to stay awake.

P.S. Having lunch with Jesse Miller.  Love talking to him.
