A packed lunch, a long walk on the beach, and a nap in the sun was on the agenda for Sunday and in my opinion a wonderful way to welcome in the new month. I hope yours is off to a great start as well! I know that November will go by quickly as we feel a nip in the air this morning and a few snow flurries yesterday. Anyone else see them? I hope if you have friends or family in the storm hit areas that they are safe and warm! My thoughts are with them all.

Below are the recent blog posts on the meartsed blog at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/. Thanks to everyone who has sent me information - lots of wonderful opportunities for students and teachers posted on the front page, bottom right.
