It’s a beautiful spring day, time to spring over to Freebie Friday at And what better way to celebrate spring than by requesting your free “Drop Everything And Read” kit from Beverly Cleary? I’m not sure exactly what the kit will contain, but I’m sure it will inspire you and your kids to read more, as the mission of this event on April 12 is to make reading a daily priority for families.

Have you got the Spring Cleaning Bug? I sure do, and I’m slowly organizing and cleaning each room of our house. No matter when you can squeeze in your Spring Cleaning, I invite you to join Amy in Spring Cleaning for tips, tricks, inspiration, and even dinner recipes. She’s got some nifty printable sheets for each room where she divides the tasks up into several days – so far she’s done the Kitchen and the Bathroom with more rooms to come!
