The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Another busy week. Our daughter came home from the Alpha writers’ workshop on cloud nine. She had a an awesome time, and learned an incredible amount. I don’t know when I’ve ever seen her so excited! She has already submitted her Alpha story for publication.
With less than two weeks until we leave to take her to college (visiting family on the way out and the way back), there’s a lot to do: laundry and shopping and packing and training for her 3-week wilderness backpacking orientation trip. (Yes, really. It counts as a block course.) Not to mention I’m still trying to get far enough ahead on the blog to have some posts scheduled for while I’m gone. I’ve got a few things scheduled out that far already, and I’m trying to get several more posts done before we leave.
Have a great week, everybody!
