Blog posts

It’s hard to believe that another week is in the books. I am actually writing this on Wednesday evening as we have family coming to town for the weekend to celebrate our son’s birthday. (By the way, for those keeping track with his potty training progress, he had another finger painting incident this week.) Lesson to be learned when potty training…be very leery of leaving your child in their own room for longer than five minutes or you just may come back to a surprise, especially if it’s a boy! As my family will be in town, I may not be as active in the blogosphere or sharing, but please know that I’ve not gone missing. While I do love my family, families can be a handful at times which can make for interesting interaction.

There were a lot of great blog posts again this week and it’s always difficult to narrow it down to just 10. If you can, I do recommend you take the time to read some of the following blog posts:
