A belated Father’s Day gift

If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while, you probably recall that every Father’s Day since Ava was born I’ve made a DADDY storyboard for my husband. This year, although the pictures weren’t taken until a couple weeks after Father’s Day, and Julian kept throwing letters on the ground or pointing in the sky at “bearplanes,” and the storyboard hasn’t been ordered (quite yet), I happy to say I am keeping up the tradition.

My imperfect, but perfect for us choice for best shot Monday is:

Julian and Ava - Happy Father’s Day 2008

Feel free to also check out 2007 (when Julian was eating the letters), 2006 and, the year it all began, 2005. Then head over to Mother May I to see everyone else’s best shots.

Do you have five minutes?

WindButtonI’m excited to tell you about a new green blog in town. 5 Minutes for Going Green, a sister site of 5 Minutes for Mom and managed by the amazing Arianne, launched last week!

Going green is not a destination–it’s a journey. Together we can do a little bit each day to sustain our planet and clean up our lives, because even a small change can make a big difference. Our world is a gift, and taking care of it can be fun, fulfilling and easier than ever. No matter where you are at in life, or in this journey, green looks good on everyone.

I’m honored to be one of the monthly contributors and involved with this group of talented, passionate bloggers.
