Playful Picks (August 2, 2010)

by Amy on August 2, 2010

Happy August! Are you still savoring summer or are you feeling the pull of back-to-school and fall? We’re hoping to do a backyard campout this month and fit in as many swim days as possible.  We are looking forward to fall a bit, though, with some pumpkin seed planting this week.  Fun!

Have a wonderful week!

Diary of a Worm and Big Sister, Little Sister are favorites around here right now — will have to look for Mermaid Dance and the Jelly Bean book at the library- they look right up our alley!

Thanks for sharing. : )
