The 1984 National League Championship Series was played between the San Diego Padres and the Chicago Cubs. San Diego won the series three games to two to advance to the World Series. The 1984 NLCS was the first postseason series EVER for the Padres since the franchise's beginning in 1969. Because Katie Ann Blair arrived in the world in the middle of the series, her father hence forth referred to her as Katie Cub Buster.
I have exhausted myself with "camp onawana" style living these past couple of days (That was an early 90's TV show reference if you didn't catch it). The school I teach at has an annual high school retreat where we take all of our HS students and faculty to a camp in north Georgia. There's zip-lining, blobbing, sliding, swinging, climbing, competing, hiking, biking, swimming, singing, screaming, dancing, jumping, talking, eating, laughing, listening, praying, learning, growing, and bonding to name a few. It was an exhausting blast. I loved getting to know each of my students on a non-English level and loving on the ever changing upper and lower classmen.
I did partake in the sliding (no-picture, no pain), the zip-line (pictured, little pain), and the blob (no picture needed- too much reminder of pain!)
I can't wait for fall--- the mountain air was awesome! Welcome to September!
