Take the Pew News IQ Quiz!  I scored a  91% and missed one pesky question.  Remember, no cheating!

Part of our 4th of July was spent watching the hotdog eating contest.  This is time we will never get back, but we just couldn’t seem to look away!

I am off to vacation with my family for the next few weeks.  We have plans to travel the Oregon and Mormon trails through Nebraska and Wyoming and will spend some time on the Missouri River in far southeastern South Dakota.  The best of our time will be visiting grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins (especially Noah!!!).  If we come across an interesting tid bit I will share here.  In the meantime hang out with your family and friends!  🙂


UPDATE! (6/9/2011)  The following link will take you to my new digital citizenship and internet safety resource site that provides resources divided by grade level (K-12):  Be Cyber Intelligent.

Digital citizenship and internet safety are important topics to address with students. There are several online resources for varying ages that have excellent information, activities, and support to address these issues.
