Weekend links


Don’t forget to vote for your favourite book for the read-along! We’re at a tie at the moment and I’m looking forward to announcing the winner on Friday!

This past week Sprout 1 (almost 4yo) went on his first school trip. To a castle themed indoor playground. All kids got fed chocolate sandwiches (oh, yes! This IS Belgium) with juice and waffles for dessert (because, you know, you really need dessert after a CHOCOLATE sandwich). And no naps. Needless to say I brought home an overtired, sugar high child. This was Thursday, and we’re still recovering, believe it or not. Anyway, that was probably the highlight of our week (lame, I know). How was yours?

Here are some links from around the web. Enjoy!
