Happy Monday -- I hope you all had a great weekend! I have a bit of a hectic week on tap, but right now my heart is simply bursting with joy for Laurel. After the camp disasters of 2010 -- through which many of you were so supportive when I wrote about transitions and behavioral issues -- I'm so happy to share that Laurel's first camp drop off since that time went swimmingly. She was happy, excited, and immediately found a girl to befriend in her group. If your kids are doing camps, I hope the transitions are going well, and if you are struggling, please feel feel free to e-mail me if you need a little solidarity! Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this fun array of events in this week's Weekly Blueprint:
