The Week in Review - In the Dog House

Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where the sunshine has given way to clouds and snow is on its way. This week I gave presentation at Archbishop Williams High School in Braintree, Massachusetts. Prior to that trip I had been home for over a month and my dogs had gotten out of their kennel routines. When I went to drop them off on Thursday morning Max refused to go into his kennel. Eventually, to get him in the kennel I did the sensible thing and went into the kennel first and lured him in. It proved to be a great photo opportunity for the kennel caretakers. Next week I am going to London for BETT and TeachMeet, but my housesitter is staying with Morrison and Max so that I don't have to get into a kennel again.

Morrison, Max, and I are heading out to spend the afternoon on some new snowshoeing trails I discovered. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope you have something fun to do too.
