I'm excited to participate in Ali's Week in the Life project again this year. This will be the third time (I think) that I've participated in this project. Truthfully, neither of the previous years have ever made it into an album. However, I do have those weeks documented on the blog and I love looking back and seeing a glimpse of the dailyness that is our life. This will be the week right before the start of school so who knows if it will include a lot of last minute summer fun or some last minute preparations so that we can start school the following week. Either way, I love this process of documenting and am looking forward to it.
Melissa Wiley is a author and book blogger that I stumbled on to ages ago. She has a huge span of kids and when she recommends a book, I put it on my list to check on at the library.

So many posts about living an intentional, present life where I am right now ... do you think there is a message I'm supposed to be hearing? : )
This post from Ann Voskamp about scripture memory and this one about family time in the Word. Convicted, I am. Making plans.
And for something on an extremely humorous note:
