Excited to witness DC United’s 3-1 win over Philadelphia last night in the first game I attended since the pandemic started
After more than two years, we finally made it back to Munich, Germany, and enjoyed family, friends, and German food there as well as soccer camp, (pool) time with the cousins, excursions to a chocolate factory, and climbing high up among the trees in in the Kletterpark Vaterstetten.
Back from a week of R&R in the Outer Banks with Erin’s family, and now off to Germany less than 48 hours later…
The 2021 summer swim season has just ended, and the kids were so happy to be back swimming for the South Riding Stingrays after a year hiatus because of the pandemic. Both Sophia & Max made it to Divisionals, and Max made MVP for the 9/10-year old boys and was honored as a Colonial Swimming League All Star for 50m freestyle, 50m breaststroke, and 100m individual medley!
So proud of Max and his travel soccer team at VSA who won both of their season openers this weekend!
Here’s a brief clip featuring the Loudoun County Medical Reserve Corps vaccination site where I have helped out as a volunteer. Over 4,500 vaccinations a day for over 100,000 vaccinations since its inception!
Spent the day volunteering for Loudoun County’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccines, and I would encourage anyone to consider volunteering for their local MRC. It’s a great experience, helps the effort of combating the pandemic in your community, and if you volunteer for a vaccine distribution site, it has the added benefit of volunteers getting the vaccine as well!
Another great trip to Snowshoe, WV, with our COVID-19 pod and fantastic snow conditions
First trip of the season to Snowshoe, WV!
…from the Walter Family!
Congratulations to Max and his team for winning their age bracket in the Capital Fall Classic soccer tournament in Richmond. Although I had to watch it on video due to COVID-19-related attendance restrictions–so proud of him finishing the season with this great win!
Congratulations to my hometown team Bayern Munich for winning last night’s Champions League final! Max had his own soccer game at kickoff time, but we watched a replay later and were thrilled to see them win their sixth title!
Today, my term as Associate Editor at Journal of Management has ended. I am incredibly grateful to Editor David Allen & Senior Associate Editor Taco Reus for offering me this amazing opportunity, and I learned a lot from handling more than 100 unique manuscripts (many for multiple revisions) and close to 100 review issue proposals during my three years at JOM. And I won’t be leaving JOM as I have been invited to join the incoming JOM editorial board and will also remain the AE for any manuscripts assigned to me during my term which are still in the review process.
Spent a great day on our neighbors’ new boat on the Potomac River visiting Mount Vernon and Occoquan
Took a few days off with family and friends in a log cabin in West Virginia and enjoyed our time together hiking, kayaking, swimming, and making s’mores…
Spent the day downtown in DC visiting the strangely empty national monuments…
Spent the Winter Break skiing with family and friends in Snowshoe, WV, and had a great time despite the unusually mild temperatures
Preparing for our upcoming Snowshoe vacation by skiing on opening day at Liberty Mountain, PA.
Went skiing today with Jorge R. in Canaan Valley, West Virginia. Great start into the 2019/2020 season despite the 8 degree Fahrenheit weather!
