Weekly Wind-Down {Independence Day}

It's Independence Day!  How will you celebrate?  We had a fairly quiet day here.

This week feels like summer.  Not only is it July, but it's hot!  My daughter took a weaving class through 4-H this week.  I appreciate community programs such as 4-H. As a child, I grew up hearing about many of my friends' involvement in the program, and envied them.  I better understand now; it isn't just for the farm kids.

Just a side note, the blog will be quiet for the next week.  Time for some focused family fun!  You may be interested in exploring some of our summer activities.  Balloon tennis brings squeals of delight on a rainy day until I return.  Enjoy!
This week on the blog I shared strawberry bars and our cleaned and organized garage.

Now it's time for the party.

Each week we look for great posts to feature and pin.  (I often pin more than just my chosen feature.)  It saddens me that so many quality posts cannot be featured because bloggers chose to not link to us.  Before we pin or feature, we check to be sure you did so, so please follow the rules.  Thanks!  Always feel free to leave a comment telling me which is your link, too!
