Can you all see this amazing video clip? Please let me know if I need to change permissions so you can see it.

It is always a good idea to bring up orienteering no matter where you are.

You never know what connections you'll make!

This was on Mary Jo's flight from JFK to San Diego to attend a baby shower for (Andrew and) Jo.

Love that guy in the middle...

Walking 35:00 [2]

Walked with Ann Marie to work.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [1]

hanging controls

Bicycling 20:00 [1]

Pulled the trailer to Fresh Pond for our wee score-O.

As I pedaled along Memorial Drive, I saw goats, llamas (or their smaller cousins) and sheep. Also a wild turkey. I kid you not. And of course, chickens, but that was just pulling the bike trailer out of the garage and saying hello to the girls.

The CRLS team raced at our race, and I am happy that it includes at least one of the kids who was on the middle school teams coached by Evalin last year. Isn't that cool?

There were a ton of cross-country runners running across the grassy areas and into the woods once I got to the reservation. Apparently they were supposed to race at Lincoln-Sudbury but EEE drove them away. Keegan is on the CRLS XC team this fall, and was there, and noticed the O flags here and there, and so came to say hi before he left. I made him hang the last four flags. That was cool because it gave me time to talk to Chris Summerfield of MITOC who will be my contact for next week's race on the MIT campus on what I hope will be a new map made by Ed Despard. We are really excited about this new connection to MIT, and they said they'd support CSU putting on races there in the future, hopefully for Sprint Camp, for example.

Teaching 2:00:00 [1]

Taught two orienteering classes. One to kids grades K-2, and another grades 3-5.

I gotta tell you I have decided that teaching like that is not for me, not right now. I don't have the energy and bandwidth. I was excited about it in theory. It is all too much.

Great kids, though. Fellow teachers were David Landrigan and Chanah, who I was roping in for the first time. Hoping that she'll teach with Ethan on Thursday too.

Came home from teaching, and the CRLS O team was there having a social. I hung around the kitchen making sauce from the tomato plethora. We have really good tomato sauce tomatoes this year. That all segued into a Navigation Games board meeting. The meeting was very impressive with speakers including Ethan, Mary and Gint. We are working on our business plan.
