Celebrate Today!

We LOVE the tradition Ruth Ayres has created our blog inviting bloggers to Celebrate each week. Take some time to visit her blog for the link up of everyone's celebrations this week!

Today is our 25th annual Dublin Literacy Conference!  We love this conference--it is one of our favorite days of the year. Not only do we learn lots, but we get to see so many friends and colleagues.  We get to hear amazing speakers and buy books.  So we thought today, we'd do a daylong photo essay. Throughout the day, we'll be adding photos to this post to celebrate the day!  So check back for new additions:-) We hope you enjoy the day with us!

Celebrating student work. 

Celebrating technology: the Blogger app (we're blogging from our phones today), the Mosaicam app ("celebrity" photos to follow), and the Skitch app (which I used to annotate this screen shot on my phone)! We will also be celebrating technology later this morning when we Skype with Gene Barretta, the only author who was not able to make it here yesterday during the Great Pre-Conference Flight Delay Mayhem. 

Top, L to R, celebrating blogger friends from far and near -- Betsy and Julie. Bottom row -- Celebrating Gene Barretta's flexibility in Skyping for our family session. 

More celebrities! Cathy, Bud Hunt, Katie and Franki.

Look what Penny brought for me!


  1. I can't believe I went the whole day without seeing you, Franki!! I had to skedaddle out of there to make it back home to take pictures of my senior daughter before Winter Formal. Kudos to all of you for putting together another amazing literacy conference. I LOVED it, and Megan and I had a blast presenting! Hope to see you soon. :-)

  2. Sounds like a great time was had by all! I certainly enjoyed reading all the tweets today! Thanks so much for sharing your wealth with all of us!

  3. Love the joy and celebration! Thanks for sharing.
