I picked apples this weekend and turned most of them into apple sauce,  
what a treat fresh applesauce .... mmmmm!

The phone calls between Carol Trimble, Paul Faria and myself are no  
longer a daily happening to discuss the preparation of the Arts  
Connect! conference. We are completing the wrap-up details as I write  
this. If you attended the conference, you should have received an  
email last evening reminding you to fill out the Survey Monkey  
evaluation. Your feedback will help us in planning the next  
opportunity. Thanks to those who have taken 5 minutes to complete the  
evaluation.

Even though the conference is officially over the learning continues  
in the many blog posts on all the conference topics. Thanks to those  
of you who are contributing bloggers writing reviews of a workshop  
session. You can see below there are several. If you weren't at the  
conference perhaps something you read will plant a seed of learning  
for you. There are several posts still to come on the conference.

A new record of visitors in one week for the meartsed blog... 844! For  
those folks who have posted a comment for the first time, a GREAT BIG  
THANK YOU! It is awesome to have so many educators joining the  
conversation. The meartsed list serv is up to 1049. Yes, that means  
that 1049 people are receiving this email.
