Weekend Reading, 6.27.14

I love this picture of my kids and husband fooling around during our trip to Georges Island, Boston Harbor Islands.

It’s the weekend! What are you up to? We have family activities planned and a lot of open, unstructured time for my husband to make progress on the tree house he’s building in our backyard (I’ll show pictures when he’s done), for the kids to run around, and for me to complete the assignments for the writing class I’m taking at Grub Street. It’s a recipe for a weekend that will go by too fast.

Before you head off to your own weekend fun, here are a few pieces of Weekend Reading I wanted to share with you…
