And Now the News

by , posted on February 18th, 2011 in News

A week that started out with a celebration of love ends with spring time weather. This, my friends, makes me positively giddy. It’s also given me a touch o’ the spring fever. I’m not breaking out the flip flops yet, but just let’s say, I may be dusting them off.

Let’s get right to it shall we? Here’s all the news that’s fit to click—the fun, the educational and the all-about-me links (purely for vanity’s sake I assure you).

He’s calm. He’s cool. He’s collected. And he understands the importance of public broadcasting. Heck yeah, I’d be his neighbor.

I’d say they’re totally transferable skills. Preparing for re-entry.

from aMuse Toys
Yes, I shall take a case of these!

Swoon and love. That’s all you need to know—swoon and love.

from Small for Big
I just want to climb into this happy picture and have a picnic.

from Charlotte’s Fancy
I am a complete and total sucker for poster propaganda. Especially, when it involves m’veggies.

And here’s a look at what’s going on in the play revolution…

Can play help close the achievement gap?

It was worth the watch for many things, but in particular, this line at the end, “When children are just playing, just doing the everyday things they’re doing, what they’re really doing is a bunch of experiments to figure out how the world works.” Thanks Made by Joel Facebook Fan page for the link.



Before I go, here’s where you’ll find me hanging out these days…

Stop the presses! This really is an amazing deal.
And no, it’s not for an ipad.

Talking tech: if you can’t beat ‘em, maybe pick up a controller and join ‘em.

I’m going to try to squeeze all I can out of this one, obviously: I make my first video debut. (this one really is just pure vanity isn’t it?)


Well folks, that’s it. Hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend! See you on Monday, when we should have some new updates in our spy play series.

    Thanks for the link love! Have an amazing weekend – hopefully the weather stays warm for you. Ours just reverted to Minnesota cold. Sigh.

    My pleasure Mari. I do love those stripes.

    The weather here went crazy windy. No good hair days for anyone.

    Wow, terrific links here. I was especially glued to my screen with Mr Rogers there & I was also fascinated with the post on Let Children Play. I whole heartedly agree with letting kids get on with their imagination and letting them have free reign with play. Thx for stopping by my little blog today! I so appreciate the comment. Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
