It’s Saturday morning! As I do every Saturday morning, I’ve made a list of the week’s most popular posts. 

This week I spent a few days in Philadelphia at the ISTE Live conference. My trip was sponsored by Canva. While there I had some time to explore the city a bit and see some historical landmarks. I also enjoyed meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. My only regret is that I didn’t have time to see everyone that I knew was there. 

This morning I’m writing from Jefferson, New Hampshire where my family is getting ready to have a fun day at Santa’s Village. That’s what we’re doing today. I hope that you have something equally fun planned for your weekend!

These were the week’s most popular posts:
