Search, Kahoot, and Phones – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where after a few spring-like days winter is blowing back in with full force. After riding my bike in 60F weather earlier this week it’s a bit of a shock to the system to be back in 20s this morning. At least it’s sunny and the skiing should be good tomorrow. As always, I hope that you have something fun planned for the weekend.
