My friend sent me this link about how to talk to girls that has really got me thinking. I mean, I have four of them after all. I'll formulate some thoughts about it when my mind is not mushy from a weekend of late nights/cleaning/playing/heat-enduring. I'd love to hear others' thoughts about this topic.
I am guest-posting on this blog later this month. She is using all of September to have different people relate how they display family portraits. There are already some great ideas in there and I'm looking forward to more with the great line-up she has ready to go.
Speaking of the things we display on our walls, I have a friend who feels the same way about walls as I do: walls in our homes can be an incredible teaching tool. I'm careful to make sure most of what I put up is meaningful (see this post) and this guy actually creates meaningful things to put up. He is very talented and may even be able to custom design a family motto, etc. for you. Check out his site here.
I was sent this picture of Times Square through the grapevine:
When I showed my kids, thinking they would be ecstatic to see their mom up there larger than life, they looked at me very confused wondering why I'd be all jazzed up about a huge picture with my eyes closed and that crazy/weird expression on my face. The truth is that it's a picture of the fraction of a second my face shows up on a mormon.org video clip. If you blink you just may miss it.
But hey, Times Square. Had to share.

Happy Labor Day!
