Happy weekend, friends! What are your plans? I’m crashing back into real life post-Spring Break (‘crashing’ is just barely metaphorical here). Anyone want to volunteer to clean my house? Otherwise that’s what I’ll be doing for the foreseeable future. That, and laundry. And grocery shopping. Life of the party, over here.

If  you’re dreading real-life re-entry after Spring Break, these tips might help. (Balance and Blueberries)

Finally, the key to success, for parents. (Hint: it’s not a busier schedule for your kids). (Thanks to Cap Hill Style and The Washington Post for the link.)
