Here in West TN we have been in school for about 3 weeks. I know in some areas, school will start after Labor Day. Enjoy your weekend! (no matter what your situation is.)
This summer at iSummit, I got to visit in person with Lucy Gray, who I had followed for a quite a while. She is very active as a ADE and GCT. She blogs and has one list called Friday 5.
