World Cup for Us, Too!!

Are you watching the World Cup? I am and it is SO exciting! I received this email from a very talented teacher and was so excited to share it with you!
Here's a link of the rest of the article:

It is a little slow in the first 5 minutes but it is totally worth the watch because it is cool to see how this guy makes the tactual soccer field. Then the icing on the cake is watching the tactile sign language of the game. It is SO awesome! I can just feel the excitement!!

I also loved this article/video clip about another futbol team in Brazil. I was excited watching this clip as well because I never knew how talented our people were at playing soccer until I went to Camp Abilities Costa Rica and watched it there! I was amazed!! I invited up my friend Fernando to teach it at Camp Abilities CT the same year.

Happy World Cup! Go USA!!

Pitch Perfect 2 is looking for people with a vision impairment

Holy Hannah, did you see the movie Pitch Perfect?! It's a bit older right now but it is seriously cute and AWESOME movie. In fact, I have downloaded most of the movie soundtrack to sing along to. It was great news to hear that they are making a sequel to the movie. Yesterday I saw this post about casting for Pitch Perfect 2:

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -            
If you know someone who is visually impaired and over the age of 50, they could end up appearing in an upcoming movie.
The movie Pitch Perfect 2 is looking for five or six people who meet the criteria.
Officials said they would like to cast a family member, friend or caregiver to work with them on set and portray a caregiver in the movie.
They said the visually impaired person and caregiver will both be paid for their work and time. They added it should be a fun scene.
also like some photos of both.
