This week’s Weekly Geek:
Decide what to illustrate and start taking photos: Most of you are book bloggers, so you may want to post photos of your favorite reading spot, your TBR pile(s), your local book store, your favorite librarian, your child reading, etc. You may want to post several photos of a certain topic (like all nine of your kids reading!) or a mixed bag of photos that are unrelated except that they’re bookish. Or you may want to post just one photo, it’s up to you. If you have a different type of blog, post photos of whatever you think is suitable.
I figured since I talk about them all the time, I’d probably do best to show you some pictures of my kids (as well as one of our favorite things around town.)
Down by the Arkansas (they call it Ar-KANSAS here, not AR-kan-saw like everyone else in the country, much to my irritation) River they have a really great park. We love the playground, but the absolute best thing — especially on a sunny, hot, summer day — is the fountains. The girls wanted to get out the pool, but because the ground was soaked from all the rain, I said no. I didn’t want to pay to go to a public pool, and so I suggested the fountains. The girls loved the idea, and we spent an hour and a half running through the fountains and playing on the playground. We would have stayed longer… but M had to go to “work” at the library (she’s volunteering there for the summer), so we had to come home.
It took K a while to warm up to the idea of the fountains. At first all she wanted to do was run around…
But eventually, M talked her into getting a little wet.
Everyone had a blast. 🙂
