Share It Saturday #16 and our Week-In-Review

Our Week-In-Review... 
Whew, what a week this has been!  We have been keeping it simple. 

...throwing sticks in the lake on a beautiful spring day...


...a little sensory bin fun...


...starting potty training with my 18 month old "Baby" Girl.  We're stocked up on paper towels and carpet cleaner!


...and TONS of outside play, nature walks, and just loving the warmer weather!


We found this pin on Pinterest and pinned to our Inspiration board.   I've always loved this verse.  I think it's especially important to remember with the recent events of this week in Boston.  (link to this image can be found on our Pinterest board)

  

Share It Saturday brought us lots of great ideas to choose from.  We decided to go with the theme of our week and feature posts that help us to keep it SIMPLE.  These posts give us great ideas on how to simplify everything from the house to play to learning, and even marriage...life!  Moms are so great at multi-tasking most times during the day but sometimes life with kids can get just...bonkers!  This crazy messed-up world has so many terrors out there.  It is down-right scary bringing up kids today.  How can we make life in our homes simple and easy?  Our featured bloggers share a few ideas.  These lovely ladies share some wonderful ideas.  I know we will be trying a few of their tips!
