—-Just enough to break the ice!

My 10 year old’s favorite joke, currently.

But now that my clever introduction has been completed….

I am just recently back from ICE Conference 2013 and of course it was filled with some of my favorite people and so many of them inspired me and I actually can’t wait to go to work on Monday… don’t linch me.

And before I try and elaborate on many things, let me tell a quick story of what I came home to yesterday. Heading to the kitchen table, I see two of my son’s papers. One from his teacher – Image

Fine – Ok… just an update – full of good intentions.
Then next to that, I discover this –

It says-

 “Dog Caller – Mom and Dan this is a dog caller, if the dogs wont come in from outside, just squeeze this and they will come inside. Love Tim Darche”

Signed in his best NHL goalie signature, which no one can read.

And yes I knew what it was it was the inerts of a squeaky toy which lost its life to the jaws of our cockapoo, but I squeaked it anyway and sure enough –  two dogs at my feet.

It was there in black and white, what is happening in education verses the real innovation and curiosity happening within our kids.

I am inspired.
