Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where I have finally recovered from the jet lag of my return from the Future Schools Expo in Sydney. Again, thank you to everyone who came to see me speak at that event. I’m home for the next month and during that time I’ll be conducting a lot of webinars and working on a project that I’ve put on the back burner for the last month. But before I do any of that I’m heading out to ski in a fundraiser for Maine Adaptive Sports. I hope that you too have fun things on your schedule this weekend.
