As I reflect on all of this happy color I'm actually in Atlanta at NAEYC!!! 
Today will be a huge day. I am joining Connie Dow for her presentation, "Moving is Learning."

Here are a few glimpses of the happy hug fest that's been going on at my booth! The five beauties below are regular authors at our collaborative blog, PreK +K Sharing!

The super-uber-cyber TeachPreschool author and PreK+K contributor, Deborah Stewart, drove in later in the day and arrived while Mary Jo Huff and I were still in our annual skull session. 





Here we are regrouped for sustenance at the Hard Rock Cafe. This has got to be the best restaurant-table picture of a group that I've ever seen. Everyone visible and smiling sincerely. 

We had lots to share and plan for the future expansion of our collaborative blog as it morphs into its dot com, cyber store catalog with Early Education Emporiums open to all phase. Many more developments in the future, including a speakers bureau capable of contributing a stellar roster of speakers for your event! 

Guess what else? I am just about ready to hit 1 million page views here at my blog. It should happen later today, just about the time that Connie + I start our workshop! SERIOUSLY. ONE MILLION!!!!

  2. Congrats! I love that marshmallow art. My daughter is in pre-school and I bet her teacher would love this idea! Her teacher is much braver than I am. They paint daily. I bet she'd love this idea. Their entire week is themed around a letter. She could use this for Marshmallow. They could also do it for a winter theme! Thanks for the awesome idea!

  5. We had the BEST time!!! It was so great to get to know you all better and share ideas with everybody! A "do-over" is definitely called for!

    I love the idea of marshmallow painting! I've got a couple of bags in my file cabinet-- I think we'll try this soon!
