Some of my favorite reads in my feed reader from the week. Each of these posts had something that really resonated with me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! But first, my favorite picture of the week:

We took a walk one night after dinner. I love that Sammi is wearing Brent’s hat and that she and Scott are holding hands. It was a lovely family moment.

This contains two graphics that are fantastic. I laughed out loud at both of them because they are SO true!

School Choices: First Day of Preschool
Keri so perfectly describes how I felt about the girls going to public school this year instead of staying home with me and Scott. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who sent a child to school when my heart really yearned for them to stay home. Yep, I’m still conflicted over that choice.

Welcome to September: Play, Learn, and Explore: September
Great ideas for things to do this month. My favorite is the reminder that Sept 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Election Time: Picture Books About Presidents & Elections
I’m not very interested in politics, but I want my kids to be learn more about the political process than I did so they can, hopefully, become interested and make a difference in their communities. These books look like a great place to start!
