Next, it was off to Lakeshore Learning for the Mid-West Teacher Blogger Meet Up! My husband dropped me off and watched the baby while I went to the meet up. Jameson from Lessons with Coffee (right) and Lindsey from Thriving in Third (left) planned the entire event. They did a fabulous job planning it from so far away (Iowa and Minnesota). Here (below) they are overseeing the event.
Next up was the goodie bags and door prizes and TONS of them! First, there were the goodie bags that Lindsey and Jameson put together that included a very generous gift from Krista Wallden from Creative Clips! Who doesn't LOVE her clipart?!!! Then came a goodie bag from Lakeshore Learning that included a teacher plan book, teacher mug and a math or reading game. They also gave us some great coupons including this 20% off coupon for our readers! We also all got a goodie bag from Creative Teaching Press with die-cut letters and numbers and a giant calendar and bulletin board. Can you see why our car was so loaded down?
Ana sat at a table with me and my hubby and we had a great time talking. She also has a 6 month old son at home. All of these ladies were so sweet! I just wish we had more time to get to know one another. It will be fun to meet-up again maybe next year at the TpT conference or the next Mid-West Teacher Blogger Meet Up in Minneapolis.
