I helped out with a conference on Thursday and Friday on the coast of Maine. We invited my friend, the author Monica Wood, to keynote.  What a fun and interesting time.

I attended a session at the conference with this group of high school writing center folks.
High School writing centers are one of my areas of research and writing. I helped start the
Secondary School Writing Center Association in America. 

Lost Valley Ski Area, Auburn, Maine: #100 and #20

Lost Valley Map

Well, we finally climbed ski area #20, Lost Valley. I'd hope to do this climb before summer ended, but the best laid plans. We also climbed our 101th mountain yesterday... yes, Whitecap again. What can I say? Winter is blossoming and cold weather has iced over puddles and hiking trails. At home, the boys are psyched to ski. All's right with the world.
