This is DerpyDad he is the minecraft character that I created to play minecraft with my son. Why would I do that? I am not a gamer. HE is a gamer. HE is also an expert on minecraft. Define expert you say? He has read countless books, watched countless hours of YouTube, made his own YouTube tutorials to help people not for followers or gain, made up his own stories about it, drawn pictures of it and done all this over a 3 year period. As a teacher i can honsetly say his minecraft knowkedge is extensive. Imagine that you comitted to something at that level of dedication and suppressed your ego enough to learn for joy and not for praise or gain, imagine the potential. Funny, I didn't learn this through any of my university degrees, or variety of careers, I Iearned this by observing a young boy. In what way are your children #experts ?

Back to the basics! Today was my first flight in the mountains, a beautiful but also impressing area to fly in. It felt a bit like I was back at the beginning of flight training, with plenty of comments from the instructor about speed, attitute, where to look etc. A good opportunity to unlearn some habits that creeped in over the years ;)
The other Dutchies enjoyed long flights towards the higher mountains and ended with some convergence flying, both landing close to sun set! Life is good here ending the day with all pilots on the terrace enjoying a BBQ and sharing gliding stories... -

When you make daily progress.
This kid, has begun to take his first steps... He falls. He stumbles. He gets back up. He falls again. He tries again. He keeps trying... that is the point.
Let this little teacher be a reminder that consistency and persistence is key.
Happy weekend ya’ll.
He could just be super excited because grandma (dadi) is in town!
🌠“Dream big and work each day to do and be your best.”🌠
The message on the front of the postcard resonates deeply with me. Why?
1️⃣I believe that it’s important to dream for your own goals, and model how to dream so that our children can begin to customize their future through visualization💫💭🧠👀💭
2️⃣I believe that nothing in life is free and no one is exempt from “working” each day to evolve into the person they are trying to become in order to achieve the dreams they wish for. I fully recognize that “work” comes in all forms and is variable depending on the individual, their cognitive skillset, and their mindset...but it’s still a key ingredient to reaching one’s goals. .
🧠Visualization + 💪🏼Action = Stepping into your Dream ⛅️⛅️⛅️
heading back into the new school year soon, I decided to take a different route.
In the past I would email, but I decided to handwrite a postcard to each student’s family I case manage and privately tutor. .
🤜🏼🤛🏼It’s extremely important to me that I continue the rapport that has begun and grow the partnership between us. The student’s needs come first and all parents deserve to know that their child is seen and valued.
📍My ultimate goal is for these elementary-aged students (and one middle and one high school student) to keep working each day because their DREAMS are possible!✨✨✨
