6 Things I Learned This Week--Part 45



Agassi


Agassi was interviewed on 60 Minutes last Sunday and I happened to watch. He said he hated tennis! He dropped out of school but now funds a prep school to promote the importance of education. The funniest thing was about his hair--during one match he was so worried it would fly off that he didn't run and didn't care he lost, he was just happy his hair stayed on!

November


When playing my trivia game to feed cats and dogs, I learned that November is National Adopt A Senior Pet month. Senior pets are less work than kittens or puppies and make for great companions!

Upward Sports


At Word Journey I read a post about the kids Christian sports program called Upwards offering scholarships to military families. This is a fun program for kids that teaches the fundamentals. Here's the link to the post about it: Upward Sports Offers Scholarships to Military Families.

At The Cleveland Zoo


We also learned a lot at the Cleveland Zoo last Saturday. I did this as a separate post: What We Learned At The Zoo Saturday.

A Baby Blog


Even babies blog, well a 22-month yr. old:

We saw that piece on Agassi on 60 Minutes, too. He seems much more at peace with himself. I had no idea about his hair!

I missed that 60 minutes with Agassi - sounds like it was interesting!

I'll have to check out that baby blog - that sounds interesting, too! :)

Senior pets are cool! ;)

Happy FF! :)

Agassi is big talk right now with his book. Some interesting stuff in it, I think.

I got a friend request on Facebook from a cousin's 3 year old. Shouldn't a person be able to read before they get their first online account?

I saw Agassi's interview too. It's sure interesting what goes on with people that we have no clue about - until the write a book of course! I've seen his school in Las Vegas and it's very nice. It's wonderful he's helping the kids.

I grew up in Cleveland, and LOVE the zoo there. I didn't realize how good I had it until I moved away and found out not every place has a zoo of that caliber. Glad you enjoyed it!

Karen, thank you so much for the shout out for Upward Sports as mentioned on Word Journey.

I'm particularly thrilled that they are doing something for the children of our deployed troops. We can never repay our military men and women, but this makes for a small step in that direction.

Oh my gosh, a baby blog? That is so cute! (btw I have no idea who Agassi is! lol) (Oh, and I'm got one senior pet and two middle aged pets at home :o)

I did find it amazing that something Agassi hated he was so good at! Happy SITS Sharefest!

That's so funny that he was so obsessed with his hair! I'm shaking my head on that one.

As for the baby blog--yeah, no. I'm not big on those kinds of blogs. I don't like the ones were the animals talk baby talk either. But that's just me.

KK said...

That's funny about Agassi. We have upwards at our church and it is a great organization!

A baby blog- what a unique idea!

Unknown Mami said...

I saw the Agassi interview too. I felt bad that he hated tennis. You just never know what people go through.

Call me crabby, but I would never read a blog written from a toddler's perspective--it sounds annoying. (sorry)

I didn't know that about Agassi, but it makes sense. I'm glad he's doing something meaningful and rewarding with his life today.

Hope you have a great week! :)
