Weekend Reading: July 28, 2012

reading in her fort

The big girls had VBS at our church all week, so Sean and I took turns taking them (it’s far enough away that we have to just hang out “in town” while they’re there). On the days that I stayed home with the baby  — in an attempt to get some work done, ha! — I built her her first blanket forts, and she absolutely loved having a little space to call her own.

I thought it was ironic that her immediate reaction was to begin gathering stuff to fill it with, but I was happy to see that books made her list of essentials!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
