Sunday Family- Feb 24th

Seriously, is February almost over? This month flew by in a flurry of 100th day of school parties, birthday celebrations, Valentines Day fun, days off, & school science fair projects. Linc's birthday party got postponed due to snow, that ended up not really being any snow. So, tomorrow come snow or high water we're partying!
I had a fabulous weekend- the highlight being a book group party with the author Ally Condie. Can I just say, for the millionth time, Ally Condie has to be the sweetest, kindest, most humble author I have ever met. If you haven't read her MATCHED series go read it now- it's a different, subtle, more poetic kind of dystopic. You'll love it! She even named a character after a woman in our book group- there is a character in Chapter 13 named Dalton Fuller, a character who makes and presents a mud bird. It was a beautiful scene that meant so much to me about creating and sharing your creations with others. Seriously, guys, go read this book now. (my friend Jenni did a great blog post about the party here).

We have Lincoln's birthday party this week, and then lots of school stuff to keep up busy this upcoming week. It's going to be a blast and before we all know it we'll be in March which is fantastic because, people, it means Spring it just around the corner!

How was your February? 
Did any else read and enjoy Matched? 
Anything fun coming up this next week?

Ahh, I love you're pretty yellow dress! And I love Sunday family posts, you should make them into a book.

I liked Matched! One of the only series I actually own. And it is totally crazy that February is almost over, I can't believe it. Hope the party goes great (I'm sure it will, you rock the party planning!)

I agree, you're yellow dress is adorable.

kinda glad february is almost over because it means we're one more month closer to spring! so over winter.

I've only read the first book in the series. I want to read the rest! Do you have them? I suppose I'm going to the library on Wednesday, I should check how long a wait I've got there.

February was fun except for Mira joining the terrible twos 2 months early. Winter can be over now. I agree with Smithy.

Your yellow dress is so cute! I always look forward to these posts and seeing what your family wears each Sunday.

And, thank you for the shout out! :D
