Saturday was a pretty cool day here at “The Beach.” And by cool and I mean snazzy not actually cold, although it was. First, there was baby shower to attend, with super awesome food, cute children and dogs!
There was a brief respite at home before going out to eat at Luna Maya and the Norfolk Admirals game.
I have to send a shout out to Luna Maya (http://www.lunamayarestaurant.com). Their restaurant is amazing! This is the second time we’ve been there and it was just as delicious as I remember the first time. We both got drinks (Mango Mojito and Sangria) and both were too easy too drink. For dinner I got the Burrito Con Raja’s and Leanne got the Chorizo Burrito. Both burrito’s were the size of the plate, which was not small… Needless to say we didn’t finish them that night. Besides being huge, they were quite tasty!
After gorging ourselves on chorizo, rice, cheese, beans, guacamole, and alcohol we moseyed on down to the Admirals game.
If you can’t tell from the picture; the ice is pink in honor of Susan G. Komen. It was Susan G. Komen night and there were a ton of people there, which was awesome. It made for a really exciting and loud game. The Admirals won 3-2 and had 50 some shots on goal! Crazy!
Alright, on to postaday2011. The topic for today is…Describe a time when you witnessed bravery: a) in your profession. So here’s the deal. I witness bravery everyday in my profession. What profession is that, you may ask? Teaching. You have to be a brave individual to stand in front of a 20 or so kids day in and day out and teach them what they need to know. Not only to pass each grade, but also really teaching them how to make it in the world. Sure, it may sound uber cheesy, but it’s true. They are all relying on you to give them the knowledge that will carry and stay with them for the rest of their lives. Kind of a scary thought, no?
Yes, that is a group of 80 first and second graders. Yes, they are in fact at a theater. Yes, we took about 80 first and second graders to see the Lion King in Cincinnati Ohio. And then yes, we drove them through Over the Rhine (accidentally) on the way home. But, that’s a different story for a different day.
