Family member Kailyn was a national freeskiing champion in April when she had a bad fall. This is Part III of the Denver Post's story (published today) on her recovery. At 15, Kailyn is an inspiration.
Freeskier Kailyn Forsberg adapts to her new life after a crash that left her paralyzed from the waist down.

Know anyone facing rotator cuff surgery? Here are a few tips I've gleaned from the past nine weeks.
Nine weeks post-rotator cuff surgery, I've learned a few things that I think would be helpful to pass on to those considering this challenging surgery. This is obviously not my typical blog post, but I figure many of us know people facing or recovering from rotator cuff surgery.

As a human being and a middle school teacher, I adore this. Thank you for sharing your talent (and I'm referring to SONG, as much as the impressions, which I realize are lipsynced.)

I really liked the video showing how they made it too. Pretty nifty.

It's not too late to enter to win!
I recently requested an opportunity to review a new children's book called The Most Magnificent Thing. The title intrigued me, because it reportedly had a strong, smart, creative, female character and seemed to relate somewhat to science and engineering, judging from the cover.

Heading to Seattle next week and need a fairly easy day hike with a big payoff, near Seattle, to whet our appetites for Rainier and St. Helens Friday and Saturday. Suggestions? #hikingtrails   #washingtonstate

Our 6th graders wrote letters to their future selves. This one was special. [shared w the student's permission]
Students were assigned to write letters to their future selves (two years from now, they will be eighth graders). I already know this one (written by a student without special needs) is going to be one of my favorite pieces of student work this year (see transcription for "Nate" below): ...

We ate at Angelina's on Friday night. Our waitress, Allie (sp?) was terrific. We were seated at a table downstairs, near the bar; I went upstairs to find a beautiful, warmly decorated dining room at which I would have preferred to sit, though we hadn't been asked. We ordered the calamari appetizer (It was okay; a little rubbery, but tasty), two raviolis (very good, but the Butternut Squash at Chives beats this one, hands-down), pesto pasta (not as good as my homemade, insists my husband, though the pasta itself was cooked perfectly) salmon (cooked more than we cook ours at home, but tasty), and tilapia (tasty but not very eye-appealing in presentation). The vegetable sides were gorgeous and delicious! My husband had three cocktails. Our bill came to $100 (before the tip) for the three of us. When spending that kind of money for dinner, I would expect something special, and while we had a decent experience here, we are unlikely to return; it just wasn't anything to write home about, in our opinions.

A walk back in time to see what real customer service and quality workmanship are all about!

Our golden retriever loved going to the Animal Clinic of Suamico and received excellent care there for his entire life. Putting him down was tough. Dr. Spires made the experience quick and pain-free for Cooper, and we appreciated his follow-up condolence card. We have a new puppy now, and we have our first appointment for him next week. Rates are very reasonable, and the staff I've dealt with have been professional. My only "complaint" would be that the hours are somewhat limited (7-5 weekdays and 8-noon on Saturday), but I don't expect Dr. Spires to work 24 hours a day. (Emergency appointments are referred to Green Bay Animal Emergency Center.) I would definitely recommend this clinic. p.s. In reference to a previous review, "Angel" doesn't work there anymore.

My friend and I went to a birthday party at the Parkway Chateau. While the facility isn't the newest place in the world (and the bathroom was about 80 degrees), the food at the party was the absolute best I've ever had at such an event. The prime rib--amazing. Chicken wings--fantastic. Even the veggies and dip were fresh and delicious. The bartenders at the party were efficient and professional. Overall, the Parkway Chateau is a diamond in the rough, and I hope I'm in town to enjoy it again one day.

My husband and I met another couple for dinner at SALT. We thought everything was delicious. My husband, who is a world traveler who eats out a lot said that the oysters were some of the best he's ever had. The presentation was great, and we also loved the classy-yet-comfortable atmosphere. My best advice is to check out the menu on-line ahead of time--It's very eclectic and unusual. You'll also want to choose your entree carefully; you may not feel like you've had enough to eat with some of the entrees. (Even with an appetizer and dessert, my quail just wasn't enough.) The service, I'm happy to report, was excellent.

I came in without an appointment this week and experienced great customer service. Annette, the designer who helped me choose a carpet (as well as paint colors), was wonderful to work with. I haven't made my decision yet, but this early process was pain-free and very reassuring. I look forward to receiving our bid.
