BUSY! Did you miss me?

So, life has been a little crazy. I have not been very diligent with my blog postings, but know that I'm still here.

I've been on the road with training sessions, I've been doing a complete overhaul of our learning space. (Cleaning, reorganizing, etc...), and We went camping!  Here are a few pics to enjoy:
Remember the great vertical gear board we saw in Cleveland? Well, here is our version I made last week! I keep forgetting to unpack the camera from my training materials, so I don't have as many photos as normal. I will however have a tutorial post coming for you very soon! The children LOVE this board. The gears are fun, but using it as a HUGE vertical geo-board has been their favorite thing to do so far.
We have been spending a lot of time out in the summer sun, and finding great places for shade too! There is nothing like a swing on your belly, everyone needs to be a flying super hero once and awhile!
Dane is gearing up for Boy Scout Camp. We went camping as a family to give him some practice before the event, and had a great time.
So, I apologize if you have been waiting to hear more from me. We are enjoying our summer, and I'll be back in the blogging world sporadically over the next few weeks with intentions of more regular appearances when fall rolls around. I'm also having the blog and website merged.... watch for new changes on the horizon.

Yes, I've missed your posts. You always have such terrific ideas (I tried a couple, including melting sandpaper art, and they worked out great!) I can't wait for a tutorial for the gear/geoboard. It looks like so much fun and I already have the gears, the rubber bands and a big pegboard left over from a different project.
