I got to shower a teacher in NC with gifts today including a golden ticket to the DEN Summer Institute 2014, an event I organized and produced at Vanderbilt University on behalf of Discovery Communications.

 

May 6, 2014: Big Bexar Goes to the Doctor

Big Bexar

Our sweet boy had to go to the Dr. this morning. Fortunately he should be just fine with insulin injections every 12 hours. He is already feeling better. I know that we probably have many more years of joy with him.  Still, he is precious to us. We are not prepared for a future without Big Bexar Super Buddy.

Masters’ Week 2014

It’s the only time Momma cares anything about golf. I have only slightly more interest in the sport of my father and brother. I’d like to learn to play golf; it sure does keep you young. I am grateful to have attended the Masters tournament more than once.

Lake Greenwood State Park: April 02, 2014

I never camped here as a child; my folks always went to Elijah Clark State Park when we camped. Lake Greenwood sure has given us plenty of good memories though.

Lake Greenwood State Park: Geocaching Easter Egg hunt, April 05, 2014

I hosted and planned two Easter Egg hunt themed Geocaching events for Lake Greenwood State Park. Hardcore Geocachers showed up in the rain in 2013. This group from 2014 when the weather was cooperative included a full range of expertise and geocaching experience. The park was pleased with the turn-out. I enjoyed planning educational activities that increase community engagement for a state park.

Women in STEM: March 25, 2014

We co-hosted an event for Girls inc. at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. I guided groups of children through science explorations. This is a photo of some of the students participating in a kinesthetic lecture by my colleague and friend Lodge McCammon.
