July 17th: SK Showcase and Weekend Links

Well, the showcase pool has dried up, so I don’t have anyone’s fun to show off for you this week.  If your family has been up to some delightful, creative, joyful living, won’t you take a moment to share it with the Simple Kids community? You can email your submission to me at simplekidsblog at gmail dot com!

Did you know Simple Kids has a Flickr group?  It’s true, we do!  And I have been one lousy moderator of that group.  I originally had thoughts of organizing monthly creativity challenges and all kinds of other Flickr-y fun, but I just have not been able to carve out the time to attend to that.  I received such an overwhelming response last week when I asked for volunteers for the book review team, I thought I might seek out help from this awesome and supportive community once more.  Is there anyone who might like to volunteer to manage the Simple Kids Flickr group? If so, send me an email and we can talk about specifics.
