WOW has it been wet in the mid-coast!! Two hummingbirds sat for a very long time drinking juice out of the feeder. I understand they are on the feeder more due to the amount of rain and the lack of flowers blooming. In the last week I have worn my raincoat on my walk every single day! Hopefully there will be a little sun some time this week. Today I travel to Washington County for the Commissioner's Listening Tour. If you live up that way I hope to see you.

I really enjoyed seeing many music educators at the MMEA conference Thursday and Friday in Gorham on the USM campus. I had the chance to listen and watch students at All-State practice in the band, orchestra, and chorus. JUST AMAZING! We are fortunate to have such outstanding music educators state wide! I will be posting about it on the blog in the next week. 

Thanks to everyone who is sending me information. Many emails with info these days. Below are the most recent posts that you can read at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/.
