This week we moved back into our house and adjusted to not having Jeff’s parents cooking for us and helping with the kids (the struggle was real y’all), plus third quarter ended and my grades were due yesterday (#nineweeksleft), and… we had to celebrate our big TWO year old and prep for her party (going on as you read this -check out my Instagram for pictures) so…. it was a bit of a wild week.
BUT, I still took some time (procrastinating, if I’m being honest) to put together a few of my favorite Links & Likes for ya. Enjoy!
“Teachers, You Are on the Front Lines as Defenders of Truth. Our Students Need You More Than Ever” – this is a couple of months old now – from The Cornerstone for Teachers Blog – but I keep meaning to share it. It is one of the most important things I’ve read in a while. Teachers, make some time to read and think about it.
“What We Neglect When the Children Are Young” – Lesley mentioned this in the above podcast, and I liked the title enough to immediately track it down…. I’m glad I did.
“Teaching Kids That Women Can Work and Be Moms at the Same Time” – basically I just became obsessed with the Motherwell blog
“‘I’ve NEVER Met a Mom Who Said She Wished She Worked More'” – Laura Vanderkam’s response to this comment on her blog is perfect
I was so excited to find this faux leather backpack from Target recently… I’ve been on the lookout for a “stylish” backpack for a while because #handsfree, but I haven’t been ready to bite the bullet on some of the high price tags I’ve seen. This one is MUCH more up my alley, and I *think* I really like the look of the brown one! (Is it ugly? Dorky? Seriously. Tell me. I’m still torn between this and the Longchamp one I mentioned back at Christmas, but the price difference is huge!)
Also from Target… I tried these shoes on (in blush – which looks more neutral in person) last weekend because I’ve been “needing” something more casual to wear when ballet flats just don’t really go (I’m not a fan of sneakers and jeans usually, but most of my flats seem kind-of mismatched with a hoodie – a real serious problem, I know)… These are definitely making my “wishlist” for spring (more on that coming soon).
Library Card Pillow on Etsy – Wouldn’t this be so cute in a little reading nook at home or school? I want one in every color!
Did you see that She Reads Truth is releasing a Bible? It’s beautiful.
I’m also super excited about this new children’s book by Chelsea Clinton – due out in May.
So, tell me, what do you find/read/love this week? Have a great spring weekend!! See ya Monday – I’ll be 33 by then!
