For Your Weekend

Anyone else excited about the Olympics starting today? Because of our strong ties to Brazil, I’ve been following the all the preparations and controversies closely. I’m wishing for the best for the sake of Brazil and the athletes, and I’m excited to watch the competitions against the backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

We just got back from a relaxing stay on the coast (more on that soon; here’s a peek) and now have more family visiting for a few days. Summer is almost over, soccer practices have begun, and my older son is about to turn 9. Time marches on! I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup of links for your weekend reading:
