Friday Favorites Blog Roundup – May 3, 2019

It has been a very rainy and wet spring so far.  It seems about every two or three days we have a soaking rain.  I’m not talking just a quick shower.  Not even a heavy downpour.  We’re talking hours and hours of rain.  Areas around Metro Detroit, especially near rivers and lakes, have been flooding.  Our sump pump has been getting a workout.  My son has had to miss several practices.  It seems never ending.  With all that, I’ve been inside and have read some great blog posts over the past couple of weeks.  Here are some I wanted to share in my first blog roundup of May 2019.

Great Posts From The Last Two Weeks

I hope you enjoy these great posts.  Have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites Roundup – April 19, 2019

Baseball practice has started for my son.  This is his third year playing.  We switched him over to Little League this year.  The past two years we used a city-sponsored organization, but we ran into an increasing number of problems.  There was a disparity in team talent, lack of organization, poor communication, and the like.  Little League is more expensive, but so far has been a much better experience.

The Michigan weather hasn’t done us any favors.  April can go either way.  This year we’ve had some really warm days, but also some incredibly cold days.  Practices have seemed to favor the chilly days.  It’s also been very rainy.  So, even if they practice when it’s not raining, it’s been muddy.

Regardless, it’s still fun to see kids learn and grow individually and as a team.

Great Blog Posts

With that said, here are five great blog posts I’ve recently read as well as one I wrote that I am proud of.  I hope you enjoy them!

Have a fantastic weekend!

I hope that things have been well in your neighborhood.  Here in Michigan, fall came in a pretty big hurry.  We started October with temperatures in or near 80 degrees.  This was over 20 degrees higher than normal. All of a sudden, it dropped.  We’re now seeing high temperatures around 50-55 degrees.  It’s been quite the sudden change!

Huge Game

One of our biggest rivalries here in Michigan is the college football game of Michigan vs. Michigan State.  We’ve always been a Michigan family, so we’ll be rooting for the Maize and Blue!

Friday Favorites – March 9, 2018

Happy Friday, all!  Welcome to Friday Favorites for March 2018.  I hope you are finishing off a great week.  This week was pretty interesting.  My kids school PTO had a fundraiser, so we had an excuse to eat fast food on Tuesday.  Yum!  Other good news is that we got our tax refunds already!  Woot!  That’s a great benefit to filing early.  Other than that it’s been kind of blah.  The second half of February was pretty warm, but March is starting off pretty cool and snowy.  Well, hopefully it’s in like a lion and out like a lamb.  We’ll see!

How was your week?

Friday Favorites – March 2, 2018

Things in Michigan have been crazy weather wise.  I grilled earlier this week as it was in the 60’s.  Today I’m looking at a snowstorm expected to dump six inches.  Yikes!  It’s Friday and that means it’s time for some of my favorite blog posts.  This is the Friday Favorites March 2, 2018 edition.

I’ve missed quite a few weeks.  Sorry about that, life has been crazy!  But the good articles have kept coming.  I have some catching up to do!  Here are some I hope you enjoy.

Friday Favorites – January 2018

Hi all.  It’s time for my Friday Favorites – January 2018 edition.  I hope that you’ve had a great start to the New Year.  The big excitement around here was a big flash and boom.  The other night, there was a big meteor in the area.  It lit up the sky and made a really big boom, heard throughout the state of Michigan.  I didn’t see the light, but heard the boom.  At first, I thought it was the kids jumping off the bed!  They’ve been doing that a lot lately.
