Weekend Reading: June 11, 2011

joyful girl
our oldest daughter, full of joy

This kid — our oldest daughter — keeps us on our toes day in and day out. Rather than easing into parenting with a compliant child, we got a strong-willed, exuberant, precocious one…and I wouldn’t have her any other way. Her middle name is Joy, and she embodies that with every fiber of her being!

This afternoon we’re having between 30 and 40 people over for a backyard get-together. I’m excited to have time with our friends — some that we haven’t see since co-op ended in April — and I’m determined not to stress out in the process.

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!
