Week in Review - It's Almost Vacation Time

Click for full size
Good morning from Greenwood, Maine (birthplace of LL Bean). We had a few light dustings of snow this week. Morrison (my dog) and I and are hoping for more snow this week so that we can snowshoe during vacation week. In reading Tweets yesterday, it appears that some of you started your winter vacation with the end of the school day yesterday, enjoy it. For those who have another week to go, I hope the week goes quickly and your students aren't too crazy with vacation anticipation.
