weekend links

soccer balls


They remind me of a bunch of balloons. It’s like our backyard is celebrating something.


 
Okay, so it’s Monday. They’re still really good links. And I have had sick kids for two solid weeks now, which I think means it’s okay to pretend Monday is part of the weekend.

Friday night I tucked the children all into bed and thought: Hooray! Everyone’s finally healthy! And then around midnight Eli, who is two, THREW UP IN MY BED. This is not my idea of a great Friday night, people.

Saturday night brought us an(other) ear infection and fresh fever, and Sunday we just stayed home and did not tempt the bacteria of the world, who clearly have some kind of vendetta against us. And now it’s Monday.
