Summer camp Catch up

I need to catch up with all my other campers!

Day 8 – If you had to teach something, what would you teach? (If you DO teach, when did you discover your love for teaching/the subject?) Do you think blogs can play a role in education?

I actually DO teach – something I never ever in 3857309 years thought I would do. I teach anatomy (and other medically related courses) to allied health students. It was something that kind of just fell in my lap and I ended up liking it. Liking it so much that I want to get a PhD and keep on teaching. Bizarre how life works sometimes!

Blogs absolutely can play a role in education – both for children AND adults. As I was finishing up my Master’s this year I connected with quite a few other bloggers/tweeters who were also continuing their education, working full time and being a parent. It is SO nice to have that kind of connection, especially when the wheels don’t want to turn anymore.

Day 9 – What is the most important lesson you learned from your own mother (or other primary caretaker)? What do you imagine the name of your Grandmother’s blog would be and what would she write about?

Oh this is so hard and should really be a post all in it’s own. I ADORE my mother. For a million and 2918 reasons, she is amazing to me. She keeps  me grounded, makes me laugh, supports me and loves me all the time.

The most important lesson I have learned from is probably the hardest one I have had to experience – we all know that things happens for a reason, everything in life does. But if you don’t get up, dust yourself off and keep moving forward – you’ll never know the reason. And you’ll never learn anything from it.

My mom has been through a lot in her life, but you wouldn’t know her struggles by looking at her. You would simply see a woman who loves her family more than anything, who smiles often and has the most comforting hands in the world.

I am blessed to have her hand to hold, because sometimes, being an adult SUCKS and a girl just needs her mama.

My grandmother was an equally amazing woman – I don’t know what it would have been named, but it certainly would have been whitty and full of information you didn’t know you needed to know. Like how important it is to use a separate spoon for the pasta and the sauce.

Day 10 – Share your favorite recipe (or two) (see! You CAN be a food blogger!)
I am not much of a recipe person – but sometimes I share here when something comes out really yummy.

One of my favorites is Mac & Cheese Soup. Because it’s macaroni and cheese soup!!!
