I was a speaker/performer at the RCB (Redirecting Children’s Behaviour) National Convention here in Austin. Oh, it was a marvelous time!

I was thinking about lists. I thought I’d make a list of things that interest me.
Here goes:

    Hola Sara,

    �C�mo usted es? �Por qu� no ESCAFANDRA AUTONOMA, el agua que esqu�a, ni nataci�n con tiburones? Si yo lo puedo obtener para hacer ese beneficio fuera aqu� en Florida del noroeste para Lo Mantiene Derecho el a�o pr�ximo, usted tendr� para traer su familia y por lo menos esn�rquel, el windsurf, y una cosa nueva que tenemos fuera aqu�, waveskiing. Es la clase de que quiere una tabla hawaiana que usted se sienta en y utiliza una raqueta de kayac.



    Hello Sara,

    How are you? Why no SCUBA, water skiing, or swimming with sharks? If I can get you to do that benefit out here in Northwest Florida for Keep It Straight next year, you are going to have to bring your family and at least snorkel, windsurf, and a new thing we have out here, waveskiing. It’s kind of like a surfboard that you sit on and use a kayak paddle.
