prairie-teeth said: Which session are you going to?

Of NBTSC? I’m actually just flying down to S1 with my baby brother and meeting my girlfriend and her family to go camping on the coast. I’m very much past my NBTSC days, in more ways than one.

Hey people.
Things are pretty crazy right now. In less than 24 hours I board a flight to Medford where I’ll meet the Robertsons to go camping for a few days! And then I’ll be with them until NBTSC ends.
I’m a bit behind on my life because I spent 3 days treating for possible scabies, so that’s fun. Working on catching up. Today’s really busy for me. 
NW Fantasy draft was yesterday, and I’m excited to be on Red Team, and even more excited just to be going! :) PQL practices are also going to be weekly now instead of biweekly!
I’ve got a lot of work to do, you probably won’t hear from me until at least Thursday.

PQL IS VERY EXCITED TO BE SENDING 6 PLAYERS TO THE NORTHWEST FANTASY TOURNAMENT IN BELLINGHAM, WA. ON AUGUST 16TH!

pdxquidditch:

Here are their draft results from yesterday:

  • Amy Larson, drafted round 6 by team purple
  • Benji Dangersquirrel B’Shalom, drafted round 12 by team red
  • Phill Willis, drafted round 15 by team blue
  • Jonah B’Shalom, drafted round 15 by team orange
  • Calico B’Shalom, drafted round 16 by team red
  • Jess Robertson, drafted round 16 by team orange

It’ll be great to spend time with other Northwest quidkids and represent Portland’s growing presence in the sport, and no matter what team wins, an Augurey will get to taste victory! And hopefully we’ll live tweet the tournament!

In order to prepare players for the full-contact play, practices on the 3rd and 12th will focus on tackling.

Getting ready for kidditch at LIFE is Good conference in May!

We put up the hoops and explained the rules and practiced passing and running and beating a bit, then split up into teams to play!

So, above you can see the horrible wound I suffered when I ran into Coryn’s broom on Sunday. Thanks, broom. It was dripping blood when I first got it. It was all worth it though, because it was our best practice yet by a long shot!

The PQL anniversary is on Tuesday and it’s gonna be awesome!

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I do have a good reason. My mom was diagnosed with Myelofibrosis, which is an extremely rare form of Leukemia in which bone marrow turns into scar tissue. We’re not sure what exactly it’s gonna mean but it’s scary and she’s gonna need a bone marrow transplant. So, I’ve been dealing with that and that is my very good reason why I have not posted a lot. 

Quidditch has been going well though, and I had fun at a party with unschoolers on the 4th of July, and I was rooting for (in order) Argentina, Netherlands, and Brazil at World Cup and they finished 2, 3, and 4, so I guess overall that went pretty well. And I’ll get to root for Canada and Australia for Global Games this weekend. 

I finished Breaking Bad, it was amazing, and now my next show is House of Cards. Wish me luck. 

I’m working on posting photos on this blog and the quidditch one, and today is my mom’s 42nd birthday so it should be fun.

BABYSITTING TINY IRISH CHILDREN ON PROM NIGHT.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW CUTE IT WAS.

THEY HAD TINY ACCENTS AND I SHOWED THEM MINECRAFT AND THEY WANTED ME TO GIVE IT THE COMMAND “/POO” OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND THEY REQUIRED NO FEWER THAN SIX BEDTIME STORIES AND IT WAS JUST ADORABLE. 

Their names are Milo and Evvie and I want them. 

Look how sweet and adorable Tasha is reading to them. :) 

All photos accept the one with her in it were taken by her.
