I can not believe that it is almost the middle of May! My tulips are smaller this year but the blooms are just coming and should be open tomorrow, if the weather cooperates. I hope you got a chance to get outside this weekend and enjoy the weather. My annual Mother’s Day trek to Damariscotta Mills to see the alewives swimming upstream was a DELIGHT!

Below are the most recent blog posts located at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/. Thanks to everyone who sent me information to post. It is great to hear from you - please don't hesitate to send me information on anything arts education related. It is especially wonderful to share what is going on in arts ed classrooms across the state.
