Weekend Reading


The photo above was taken while riding my bike Tuesday. We went with Coco and Theo over to Chatcolet, Idaho and did our very favorite bike ride for the first time this season. It really feels like summer is here now. It was a perfectly gorgeous day and the lake was so beautiful. Long live summer! This weekend is going be busy, busy, busy with my nephew's high school graduation and parties and celebrating. I cannot believe that little baby is already graduating. It definitely makes me want to hug Coco and Theo an extra hundred times per day!

And here are some fun links and a little weekend reading for you.

When you have a toddler and your house is a literal treasure.

This toy had ALL THE KIDS OBSESSED at a birthday party we went to last weekend. Coco is still talking about it.

Stop complaining about how you need more space.

Why you need an early night. So good.

Not a football player, not a weightlifter, but a dancer. This is my kind of hero! (Made me think of this post;)

Travel goals. (!!!)

The toy-free kindergarten.

Yikes.

Instead of relying on the iPad so much, we're getting Coco a few of these for our summer road trips.

Super excited to listen to this new podcast. Especially after this trip.

And finally, this incredible event is taking place this weekend in honor of my college friend and sorority sister Jen. Sending her family so much love. And if you'd like to make a donation, you can do so through the event website right here.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Wear sunscreen! And see you back here Monday. xo

  1. The toy-free article was interesting and very timely as I have been wondering about when and how to pack the kids toys before we move overseas! I don't think I'll be quite so extreme but it might end up being a cool experiment to have just what will go in their backpacks (their dolls, their knuffle bunnies, some art supplies, plus a couple other small toys) for a few months. Given that even children in nomadic, traditional cultures tend to have dolls and/or small carved or woven pocket-sized toys, I think the approach described in the article sounds excessive, but perhaps it balances out what most children have access to at home. I know when I have rotated out more of our toys after getting fed up with the mess, the play tends to get more creative with what is left and no less fun is had.

    1. I completely agree! I was just thinking today that dolls are a must. Not like a hundred stuffed animals, but Coco has one special doll called "Big Baby" and I could just never take her away. xx
