I’ve been working behind the scenes with Rainy Day Mum on a new blog. It’s a blog for bloggers that blog about their kids. It going to be full of tips and tricks of blog how-tos, social media tips, along with connecting you with other bloggers of the same niche. If you’re a ‘kid blogger’ join the community!

Right now, we’re taking submissions for the August Carnival: School Days. You can submit any posts that are school related. I look forward to going through them and featuring them at the end of the month!
Noteworthy posts to check out:
- Incredible overload (56 ideas!) of sensory activities for babies from Growing a Jeweled Rose.
- This is an oldie one from 1+1+1=1 but I just found it again and had to share. An alphabet maze!
- Childhood Beckons livens up the game of “Catch” with 10 variations! I love the bucket idea!
We’ve been at the farm a lot this week. And Grandma handed Henry her camera one morning. Henry couldn’t stop taking pictures of the Green Tractor. A lot of pictures. I’m curious how they turned out. I know there were a few that actually were of the tractor.
This next week is all about school.
