UW Site Visit and Alexa’s Baby: Life is busy in Seattle

students collaborating on coding project

Hello iD Nation!

It’s been a crazy week.  More than ever, I understand what it is like to drop off a loved-one at camp.  Why?  this week my older son (2 1/2) started pre-school.  Check out the froggy backpack.

Mama and I were so proud!

I jumped on a plane yesterday and headed to Seattle.  Seattle is a special place.  Alexa, my sister and business partner, lives here.  We are both UW grads.  Go Huskies!  I went in for a site visit to our UW location this morning.  Camp is in its first week.  The crew are rocking and rolling.  Students are creating some incredible projects, staff is joking with them, parents are providing great feedback–and this is being replicated all over the country at all of our 50 summer computer camp locations across the country.  Go staff!  Go campers!  Go parents!  Go iD!

After spending the morning at UW, I headed back to Alexa’s house…

Alexa, above, with husband Steve, headed to the hospital just hours ago.  She is having a baby boy–today!    She worked right up until noon, and then headed out to the hospital just after 1 PM.  That’s dedication!  Alexa–All of us wish you the best today!!   We promise not to call you today with any more work-related questions.  Seriously.

While Alexa is at the hospital, I am getting to spend a few precious hours with “Baby G.”  And I get to grab a few minutes to blog about it.

The next blog, Picture of the Week from this week (6/24) will be posted shortly.

Have a great day, Nation!  Send good thoughts to Alexa!
