Tonight I am slipping in under the wire for Slice of Life. At least I'm slipping in with something.

What's one of the best ways to spend an evening? Hanging out with these three over a bowl (or two) of queso. A few years ago, the four of us started chatting often on Twitter and then crossing paths at conferences and gatherings. It wasn't long until we decided to start getting together to share what we had learned. We've supported each other through blogging, Twitter, Evernote, Pinterest (yes, even Pinterest), learning about new apps, and weaving all of this into literacy in our classrooms.
Our gatherings have moved from our devices, to queso in the winter, porches and patios in the summer. Whatever the weather, I enjoy the time chatting with these three amazing women who have become great friends. Our conversations weave across teaching, literacy, technology, professional reading, and into our lives (even yearbooks and yellow roses...lol). Whatever the conversation, I always come away feeling refreshed and energized.
