The Friday Five: 5 Popular Posts (aka, things I cannot believe I shared on the internet)


Do you know why I’m holding this potty seat?  If you are just joining us at the SK blog (welcome!) or if you missed a few posts, this might be a mystery.

Never fear, I’m here to answer your questions in this week’s Friday Five.

My family and I are enjoying a few days staying at my parents place in the middle of nowhere. I’ve been looking forward to this chance to unwind, hang out with my parents, and escape daily life for months now.  Isn’t it neat to watch your parents be grandparents?  It is one of my favorite things.

While we are enjoying lightening bugs, fireworks, swimming, and berry picking, I thought I’d share five popular posts so far for 2013.

According to my analytics, these are the readers’ favorite posts so far this year (and many of them are mine, too):
