sport stacking ever heard of it?

Never fear…neither had I. Until, that is, Amy Stoddard introduced us all to this unusual “sport” that she coaches at a local elementary school in Colorado Springs. Here’s a video you all must watch of the current Sport Stacking World Champion, a 10-year old kid!

Amazing, no?! We all tried this a few weeks ago at a family b-day gathering and it is super challenging. Not being so athletically inclined though, I think I would’ve enjoyed something of this nature in my elementary school days. It’s nice that someone is finally reaching out to the athletically-challenged/braniac kids out there and calling this a sport!

In other news, Jon and I are, of course, still loving living here in Denver. It snowed quite a bit yesterday although it will probably be clear by tomorrow (that’s how things work here). Right now we’re trying to plan something fun for our b-days (which are about 13 days apart) and we’re thinking that camping might be the solution. In Estes Park, CO there are some great camping spots w/ excellent hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. In addition to satisfying the nature-lover part of me, there are also many cute shops & restaurants plus the ultra-creepy Stanley Hotel made famous in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Shining”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Hotel) You must watch this movie – theversion with Jack Nicholson – it’s a classic!
Featured in "The Shining" and "Dumb and Dumber"

Well, it’s time to wrap this up! We’ve got a Sport Stacking National Championship game to attend to!
