The Week in Review - Last-Minute Projects

Good morning from Maine where we have frost on the ground outside of the Free Technology for Teachers world headquarters (AKA my house). The frost is a visual reminder that I have some outdoor projects that I need to finish before the snow flies. As soon as those chores are done I'm going for a walk in the woods with my dogs. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you make time to balance work with something fun too.
