Hey everyone, thanks for the great conversation this week. I hope that all are having a lovely long weekend. I for one am excited for Tuesday morning when my kids hop on the bus. I have been walking around the house singing Freedom and It's the most wonderful time of the year. The kids for their part are looking miserable and wondering how the summer came to an end so quickly. I predict one or two more weeks of light posting, as we get adjusted to the new schedule, and so I thank you in advance for your continued patience.
Below you will find links to posts that I found interesting this week. Please note, a link is not necessarily an agreement with the post itself, and the comment section is read at your own risk as always. When you are finished showing these bloggers some love, don't forget to drop it like it's hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
