Michigan Blogger Meet Up... SO FUN!

I just got home from an amazing afternoon with some incredible Michigan teachers...

Lisa and Beth from Made in the Shade in Second Grade
Amy from The Resource(ful) Room
Kara from Spedventures
Rachel from Ms. Rachels' Room
Jessica from Apples and Papers
Holly from Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade
and Andrea from Stepping Into First Grade

It was SO fun and I feel like I have 8 new friends!  :)  And, I didn't know some of the blogs so now I have new blogs to follow too!!!!!

We swapped school horror stories, shared books we love, talked technology, and got to know each other better... we even talked about some of YOU!  Who makes us laugh, who says stuff we would be too afraid to say on our own blogs (you brave blogger you!), who is lucky and wins all the giveaways...!

Thanks, ladies, for a super fun afternoon!  I hope we can do it again soon and more people can come and join us!

For some reason, the picture my camera took stinks and is super bright... put on some shades before you proceed!... so hopefully some of you got better pictures!

And here's the "perch the camera precariously on the ledge and set the timer while rushing back to your seat and waiting for it to flash" pose, which is a weird mixture of way too light and also DARK!

I can't wait to see other peoples' pictures and can seriously not wait to be able to do this again- you girls are all awesome!  I'm so thrilled we got to hook up today!  :)  And thanks, Amy, for putting it all together for us!
