Let me start by saying that the holiday weekend got me a tad behind on my blog. I didn't get the features done from last weeks link party. I will get through them and next week the features post will be double sized with features from both link parties. Sorry for the delay, but I'm sure you understand my taking a little break and enjoying a holiday weekend.
Can you believe it is September already? While the kids in our area have now gone back to school, we will get our homeschool year started in two weeks. We have a tradition of doing something fun on the first day back to school for the other kids. The last couple of years we have gone to the beach, but this year the weather didn't look very good for that, so we went to IKEA and the American Girl Store instead. We don't live near either of those places, so we spent the night in that area and made a little trip out of it. We had a great time!
