Weekly Blueprint

arnold-arboretum.jpgHappy Monday -- I hope you had a great weekend! Things have simply felt too busy around here the last several weeks so this weekend we kicked back and enjoyed a lot of family time and puttering around (note to self: try to avoid 6+ week lapses between weeding efforts...). Anyway, related, I wanted to let you know that I'm taking a blogging break this week so I can focus on some much needed time with Jon and the girls. But before I do that, here's a Weekly Blueprint filled with event ideas for the week and some excellent reading. Have a wonderful week!
August 20: All about bugs.

August 21: A festival for kids.

August 22: Birds and bliss.

August 22: An evening of virtuosos.

August 23: Wacky theatrics.

August 23: Rock funk jam it out.

August 24: Fish printing on paper or fabric.

August 24: Explore the secret garden.

And some other reading for the week:

  • I almost have no words for the powerful love in this post.

  • A reminder to think (and remember you don't know the complexities of another person's situation) before passing judgment.

  • I could use some tasty vegetable curry.

  • Don't beat yourself up about what you don't know, just start learning.

  • If you haven't been on the site lately, check out these great posts: tips for coping with allergies, tips for easing travel anxiety, three great kitchen projects with kids, cruise tips for families, ideas for how to talk to kids about body image, confidence, and diversity, and a beautiful photography book for moms.
