Good evening from Maine where we had a fun day outside despite the clouds and rain. My mother came to visit and my daughters enjoyed showing her all of the fun things in our yard including wild raspberries and blueberries, our garden vegetables, and their little backyard clubhouse. Getting an ice cream treat was also a highlight of the visit. I hope that you also had a fun start to your weekend. This week I hosted the second session of the Practical Ed Tech Virtual Summer Camp.
