Michigan Blogger Meet Up

For the past two weeks, I've been blogging from the woods (during my 15 day camping trip).  You don't have to feel sorry for me, we have a very comfortable camper.  Otherwise known as my portable vacation home. We had fabulous weather and have so many happy family memories from our time together.  We biked 78.5 miles along the trails of Lake Michigan.  I'm very proud of my kiddos for accomplishing almost 80 miles on bikes.  Not bad for a 6 year old and a 9 year old.  We also spent countless hours at the beach, snorkeled for Petoskey stones, took our doodles on long walks, watched sunsets with friends that we reunite with every year and discussed everything from crocheting to German castles around the campfire with the grandparents.  Now, I'm home and trying to get caught up (while I tackle the mountain of laundry).

 If you are a Michigan teacher blogger, don't forget that we are having a Michigan Teacher Blogger Meet Up this Sunday, July 29th at the Biggby Coffee in Northville.  The meet up will be very informal...just a chance to get to know each other and visit. Please consider coming out to join us. 

 Special thanks to Erin from Kleinspiration and award winning author, Maria Dismondy for helping to plan this meet up for our Michgian Teacher Bloggers. If you plan to come, please visit Erin's blog to add your name to the list. We would just like to have a head count to make sure we have adequate seating.


  1. Wow, that sounds like a great vacation! Did you find any petoskey stones? I have always thought they were so neat looking. I will be at the Michigan Meet-Up! I am actually a Ohio blogger, but Michigan is very close by. Can't wait to meet you!

    PS: We have a doodle, too! :)
