Instead of a big long post today I'm going to share some of my favorite funny, beautiful, awesome, and useful links.
Sometimes at the end of a long day it's time to laugh. There is a site that we frequent that you may know about - or not that is always sure to make us laugh hysterically. I captured a couple of shots of my kids laughing while watching some of the Bored Shorts Videos. Check them out - your kids will love them!
For years now I have been using a printed grocery list template. It has a large variety of items on the list making it so that I am very unlikely to forget something that I might need. I've tried apps on my phone and honestly I haven't liked any of them as much as I like my die hard template. I usually print up 10 at a time and keep them on my refrigerator so I can just grab one when I'm ready to make my list. Here it is. The weirdest item on the list is "random impulse buy". Who writes that on a list!?
Some of the most beautiful photographs you will ever see. Russian mother takes photos of her children with the animals on their farm.
I was in search of service projects to do with my kids this year. I stumbled across this blog and hit the jackpot. If you want simple ideas, fun ideas, ways to get your kids to think about people other than themselves this blog is an excellent resource. Pennies of Time
And, finally a lovely blog post written by someone I've met through some groups recently. 25 of the BEST RULES for Mothers of Daughters.
