“Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.” -Caroline Knapp

It’s a good thing Piper is so stinkin’ cute, because I spent Thursday morning fixing walls she ate during her puppyhood!

from around the web

  • Why so many kids can’t sit still :: The takeaway for parents, whether your kids are homeschooled or in traditional school: “In order for children to learn, they need to be able to pay attention. In order to pay attention, we need to let them move.”
  • Shirt bib :: As soon as I can get Ken to part with a couple of his t-shirts, I want to try making a few of these for the grandbaby! Only requires fairly simple sewing skills, so I think I can do it.
  • A week of boring: your how-to guide :: It’s crazy how hard it is for most of us to leave time for margin! In this post, Sharla breaks how to make boring work for a busy family.
  • Homemade Pizza Tutorial :: This is a recipe I think I can actually pull off and stay sane. (I really hate complicated recipes.) Bonus: Jen is hilarious.

right here at home

I decided our homeschooling needed a full stop (that’s another great link right there) so there’s purposely not much happening around here this week.

Enjoy the weekend, y’all!
