Getting Ready-Three days to go

By Janice Friesen      June 30, 2007 -- 09:09 AM
I haven't shared about the passport fiasco.  I think that was because it might turn out bad, but I have to share it now. 

My son is going with us and he did not have a passport.  Through some confusion about his birth certificate and other procrastination of what should be done on time it got too late to get his passport the regular way.  So, ...   more...

Four More Days!

By Janice Friesen      June 29, 2007 -- 12:20 PM
It is Friday. On Monday I will be on a flight (or several) to Athens, Greece and then on a train to Corinth. On Tuesday the official blogging project starts. I have only heard from a few people who are interested in receiving email updates about the trip. The main interest that I know about is Greek Architecture. Please email janicef@jfriesen.net if you have any requests! Last time I know that many friends and family followed along and commented on the blog, so you never know what the interest will be.

I am going to continue ...   more...

At the Exhibition Hall

By Janice Friesen      June 25, 2007 -- 01:37 PM
I have spent the whole day at the exhibition hall helping out with the My eCoach booth and time has flied all day!  Wow!  There has been a constant stream of people visiting the booth and asking questions.  There is lots of interest in My eCoach.

I think it is really hard to explain what My eCoach is, but it is so amazing how many things you can do with it.  Have you tried the Survey tool?  Did you know that you can filter the results?

I want to add that I am going to Greece in just 8 days!

16 Days until Greece Trip

By Janice Friesen      June 18, 2007 -- 10:58 AM
The countdown continues on my other blog :

I am switching to My eCoach for this blog for a few reasons. 
  1. I wanted to try out the blogging tool.
  2. Blogger.com is not a safe place to send students.
  3. I can easily upload and post pictures to this site.
The newest participants in the blogging project are Home Schoolers who are doing Home Schooling in High School.  They are going to combine following the trip with reading and writing to meet Social Studies and English requirements.  The students are going to use the Comment feature of the blog to ask me to find out ...   more...

By Janice Friesen      June 7, 2007 -- 09:07 AM
Today there are 26 more days until the beginning of the Greece Project.  I am keeping a countdown on my other blog http://malahinitx.blogspot.com, but today I am also putting this on the blog that I might be using for the trip.

It is hard to decide which blog to use.  I have now actively tried 4 blogging tools:
