Weekend Web Wandering 2019 – Vol. 8

Hey everyone! I’m almost too excited to write this post, because next Saturday morning I’ll be hitting the Portobello Road Market in London. (cheering sounds here)

Yes, our 10 years in the making trip BACK to the UK is just next week and I’m chuffed. (And brushing up on my Brit speak, obviously.)

I’ll miss our kiddos like crazy. But thanks to my sister and brother-in-law I know they’re going to have a great time back here too. (Last time we left the kids to go to England we only had 3 and they were 7, 4, and 2. A LOT can change in 10 years!)

Clearing out my link collection before I take off:

Discussions of what beauty is and why it matters aside, the above article also reminded me of my husband’s first (and only) year teaching in a classroom full time.

He got in trouble for not having enough decorations in his room and not changing the bulletin boards often enough. *insert eye-roll here*

Granted, he could have been more concerned with making it beautiful but in a cinder block classroom with no windows, tacking up some owl posters exhorting kids to read more hardly seems like the solution.

Well, those ought to keep you busy for a bit!

When I get back – in September – I hope to publish some of my posts backlog that I’ve saved in drafts but haven’t published yet. And do our annual “not back to school” type post (including interviews with my kiddos).

In the meantime, cheerio!
