Spring Reading Thing: Wrapping it Up

Well folks, summer is officially here and that means that the Spring Reading Thing hosted by Kat @ Callapidder Days is officially over.

My little boy is turning five, we’re buying our first house and… really, do I need more than that to say I’ll be busy? I hope to spend this Spring unpacking, playing the with the kids in … Continue reading Spring Reading Thing 2011: The Plan
