Michigan Blogger Meet Up Photos

A few months ago, a few of us decided to try to plan a Michigan Teacher Blogger Meet Up. I worked with Erin Klein (from Kleinspiration) and Maria Dismondy (award winning book author from Be the Difference) to find a date and a location. Today was the big day and we had so much fun! We met at a Biggby (coffee shop) in Northville, Michigan.

 Here is a picture of the planning crew.

We had a goodie cup, a treat bag and prizes for each guest.
We had two book authors in our group, a few technology wizards, mostly elementary teacher bloggers and several guests who admitted being blog stalkers (like me).   I learned so much today and can't wait  to try some of the new techy things I learned from the other bloggers.

Here is a picture of our whole group!

Today was full of sharing and laughing.  I am inspired by the things I learned from the other bloggers.  I am planning to blog about some of the new things I learned soon.  Lookin' forward to keeping in touch with these new bloggin' friends.

Now, back to the Olympics!

    Thanks again for helping to plan the meet up. It was so spur of the moment and out of character for me, but I had a great time. I learned a lot and became inspired to start blogging again. Can't wait to meet up again.
