Had friends over last night for Scrabble... in Norwegian! It got funnier and funnier as the beers disappeared, and we ended up having an incredibly good time (and learning some funny Norwegian words as well!)
We have a special guest in Trondheim for our upcoming conference, the president-elect of NCTM. Mike comes from Portland, Oregon, just down the road from Bellingham, Washington where we come from. I spent the afternoon with him today, showing him around Trondheim, and tonight we went to a pre-conference dinner where we sat with a group of teachers from the far north of Norway and laughed and laughed and laughed. Mike's a super-nice guy – I made a new friend today.
It was another very nice weekend. Tomorrow, the conference begins!
