Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
This is my favorite. I love the way Amy brags on her family, the way she oozes love for them. :) Thanks Amy, it's contagious!
Favorite photo from last week:
My sweet Critter made smoothies at lunch all by himself today. It helped me out immensely AND made him so big and proud and capable. A two year old can empty the drier, a three year old can empty the dishwasher. A four year old can pair up socks and anyone can help take out the trash. Vacuum, window washing, clearing the table, pulling weeds... many hands make light work.
wisdom, as always
