The agency I work for is involved in this awesome recreation program called CHILL, sponsored by Burton, Sobe, Clif Bar and other companies. It provides, free of charge, use of equipment, lessons and lift passes to at risk youth to learn how to snowboard. I was invited to be a chaperone this year, which means falling on my bootie one night a week while I learn with my kids, and I am having a BLAST! Besides the kids getting to do something recreationally awesome, I am watching them grow as leaders, demonstrating kindness and patience, all things they struggle to learn in the classroom. So, give me 2 more weeks and I will totally be trickin’ out like the caricature above. And you better believe I have put up my skis permanently and started shopping around for the perfect board.

As my Utah friends know I am sometimes referred to as the “Vagina Group Lady” by my female clients. My favorite group to teach is women’s health and I spend a great deal of time researching and creating curriculum. So, I peruse several health websites to keep up on the current info and to see the awesome materials put out by others…..but nothing, and I mean NOTHING prepared me for what I saw tonight. teenwire.com a partner of planned parenthood has videos on their website addressing different issues. It would not do this blog justice for me to try and describe what I saw tonight, so I beg, no plead, all who read this entry to go to the link below and watch the How Pregnancy Happens video. Then call me or write me right away with a scale of how hard you laughed and how semi-disturbed you were when you really thought about what you were seeing.

 It is really creative….but way forward in thinking…or maybe I’ve just lived in Utah too long.
