Weekend Reading: May 19, 2012

camp highroad

Last week the big girls and I headed to Camp Highroad, a Christian adventure camp in Virginia, for one of our very favorite field trips. We spent the day with friends learning about edible plants, doing a stream study, taking a wild and crazy hay ride, playing hide and seek in a bamboo forest and canoeing on the pond. It was the perfect summer kick-off for our family!

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!
