It’s Spring Break! My husband and I both get next week off because we teach college, and my kids will be off, too. We are in full vacation mode already! We’re looking forward to catching up on yard work and other “life stuff,” trying some new restaurants, and getting out for a day trip or two. Plus, the weather here is so nice right now that I want to spend all day, every day outside.
Happy weekend to you! Here are this week’s links for your weekend reading:
