Adaptive Sports Expo

I have the joy this summer to work with Catalyst Sports in the planning and organizing of the Adaptive Sports Expo they are hosting again this year! This group works with people of all ages who have physical disabilities to be able to do what they never thought possible, play sports!

At the Expo they will have rock climbing, biking, yoga, and many more events that are all able to be adapted for any physical disability. The group does not only do the expo, every week they get together at least once to do something together and have fun as a community. The group that I am working with normally does rock climbing
(indoors) all year round and during the summer they do paddle boarding and kayaking.

If anyone is interested in joining in on this event please contact them at Knoxville@gocatalystsports.org. Sponsors, volunteers, and participants are welcome!

How do we compare?

If any of you follow me on Facebook you should have seen a post here recently about school food in America verses other countries. I am hoping that it was a wake up call for some people but but at the same time I pray that it isn’t taken poorly. I know that a lot of Americans look at the health in our country as an issue that should be handled by the family, which is true, but it is also something that the school system should handle.

In other countries, students are taught to clean, cook, exercise, and much more. Due to this being a staple in their schooling, the students tend to come out more respectful and thankful for what they are given and even thankful for what they have to work for.

My husband and I are planning on moving out of the country so he can teach English and this is something we look forward to. When the time come, we will enroll our children in school and depending on where we live our children will either go to school in that country or back home in America. We have discussed how great these disciplines will be for our kids and how they will most likely be bilingual by then end of the grade school phase of life. We wish this for our kids: to be happy, healthy, faithful, respectful, caring, and much more but only time and God will tell. We want to raise our kinds outside of America if possible just because of the entitlement that many Americans have and lack of respect, health, etc. Now don’t think that I am a health freak or anything. Both myself and my hubby are over weight and are not happy about it and do not wish this for our kinds. Living in another country will help with that! ­čÖé

Pewds

So I have joined the fandom of the wonderful Pewdiepie, a youtuber. This man has lived in a couple different countries, published a book, created a video game, made thousands of videos, etc and is living on top of the world! During his videos he is very silly and upbeat, except on the rare occasion that he is sick. Both his game and his book just released with in the last month or so and I am proud of him, even though I don’t really know him.

Pewdiepie’s trademark is the Brofist, hints the name of the game. This has not only appeared in almost all of his videos but is also his logo.Something so simple can become so iconic if it is in the right hands.

Pewds and his girl friend Marzia (Cutiepie) make a living playing video games and being creative/intertaining for people to watch and they seem to be living the dream. Pewds videos tend to get about thousands of views and he has over 39,000,000 subscribers on YouTube (free to sign up); Cutiepie also has thousands of views per video and over 5,000,000 subscribers.

They also have some pets! The two of them have two pugs named Edgar and Mia who appear on the show often, but the also have/had two axolotls names Clint and Billy. They may have more pets that I don’t now about but I think these are pretty cool.

I am proud of what they have been able to do not only together but individually, keep gaming and stay awesome bros!
