Good morning from Maine where humidity seems to be the order of the day. It felt like I was walking in a rainforest while taking our dogs for a walk this morning. 

This week we had family visiting and staying with us all week. It was a fun for all of us, but especially for our kids who love to play with their cousins. Swimming, fishing, and making s’mores were some of the highlights of the week. I hope that you also had a great week. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. The Coolest Canva Use I’ve Seen

2. Notes from a Micro:bit Workshop

3. 15 Things That Caught My Eye at ISTE Live Today
