Happy Friday! We had a smooth week. Parent/teacher conferences, baking cookies, budgeting fun, and some extra cleaning that makes me feel like I'm actually getting ahead. I had an especially good yoga session this morning, and we're headed back to the slopes tomorrow - I feel great! Hope you all have a great weekend.
Here are a few interesting things that I've run across this week:
Five Pete Seeger songs to sing together. We lost a good one this week.
Parenting Behaviors That Keep Children From Growing Into Leaders. It's so easy to do some of these things, but it's so important to remind ourselves what is best for our children in the long term.
Extremely Long But Fascinating Article About President Obama. Seriously long, but a worthy read.
Mindful Drinking. I've been doing the same thing, not reaching for that glass of wine even when I really want it. That said, it's Friday night and I'm making something of the Mexican variety. There will be beer.
Solar System Tour. I'm a space geek. I just love this stuff.
Two posts from Momastery: This one, about the questions we ask in a relationship. And this one, that you should read and share. And then go thank a teacher.
Four Ways to Hear More in Music. Read this and then listen to a song you love.
Marriage Advice From a Divorce Lawyer. Written by my cousin, this contains a lot of great advice.
Have you read the post on Design*Sponge about the changing face of blogging? It's genuine and thoughtful. I think one thing she neglects to discuss is that there are different segments of bloggers. At least two - one that's trying to build a business/brand and potentially make a little money, and one that blogs for themselves, a creative outlet, communication with family/friends... It's thought-provoking, though.
