Summer #MilitaryMon Linky!

I think I’m going to call this the exhaustion edition! It isn’t so much the parent-of-newborn lack of sleep…I have three kids under five so…sleep? What’s that?

It is more that I bit off more than I could chew! I set aside time this summer so I could work on some personal projects and then I just took on too many other things. I have a Smart Summer Challenge over on my education blog and I am a community leader over at the Random House Kids Read & Play Summer Fun Community.

In the interest of my sanity, I think I am going to take a break from posting the linky weekly and leave this one open through August. Hopefully this will give me more time to put up some other posts here that I have planned!

A few reminders:

  • Please check out and comment on each others’ posts…that’s what makes people want to come by and leave their links! Comments are catnip to bloggers!
  • Please leave the URL to a SPECIFIC post (or posts…you can add more than one), NOT the main page of your blog.

The linky is up ALL SUMMER! So, stop by anytime!

Military Monday Linky – July 11 – Americana Edition

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend, celebrating America’s Birthday. Welcome to the July 11 linky!

Right now, I feel just like a slice of apple pie. We enjoyed a weekend out on the North Fork of Long Island with family. My mother-in-law, bless her energy, led the kids in a Fourth of July parade around the neighborhood. The kids rode their trikes and climbed trees and chased fireflies. We held an election and voted for our favorite ice cream flavor. We had a barbecue, finished off with S’mores, and followed by fireworks.

We watched the Fourth of July parade.

We played mini golf. My husband took the two older kids to the beach.

Then, this past weekend, my daughter had her dance recital.

So, it has been a week and a half of wholesome family fun!

Our Troopaws giveaway winner is: Amanda Gardner. I’ve sent you an e-mail so please check and reply!

And don’t forget to check out Troopaws and visit them on Facebook.

Here are a few great posts from last week’s linky:

Military Monday Linky – Happy July 4th!

Here I go again, leading with my strengths…I figure the kids are cuter than I am witty.

I’m taking am Independence Day weekend break and figured many of you might do the same.  So, I extended last week’s linky into this week. The linky is open, though, so feel free to add more posts this week and I’ll be back with a fresh linky next week!

While you are here, I hope you will enter this Trooppaws Giveaway I am hosting for this clever and compassionate entrepreneur who designed these stuffed animal dogs using military uniform fabric–a great gift for our young warriors who fight their own battles on the home front when a loved one deploys.

The linky is up ALL WEEK! So, stop by anytime!

Military Mondays – June 13

I think I should just post cute pictures of my little Army Brats each week…because that’s going to be better than anything else I write! We’re adjusting well to our new little addition and looking forward to Captain Dad actually being home for an entire weekend (*fingers crossed*).

What are YOU doing for Father’s Day?

Here are some of the fun posts people shared last week…please remember to add a link to a SPECIFIC POST in the linky, especially if you want to see your post featured here!

Military Mondays – New Baby Edition!

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with your families. Ours finished with a real bang as we welcomed a new Army Brat to the world. I went into labor late Monday night and Conrad Ulysses joined us on May 31 at 5:18am.  He weighed 9 lbs, 15 oz and measured 22.5 inches.  Conrad’s first name is from my husband’s grandfather, an Army veteran of World War II.

It was a very easy delivery compared to my first two and we left the hospital the next day.  Big sister and brother seem thrilled with their new sibling although they do wish mommy wasn’t napping during the day.

We had a lot of outstanding links last week both from “regulars” and from some other bloggy friends who had relevant posts celebrating Memorial Day. Here are a few I would like to highlight. Please take a moment to stop by, say hi, and leave a comment if you enjoyed the post. Bloggers love comments!

Military Monday: Memorial Day Edition

What are you doing this Memorial Day? I hope you will join this Military Monday Family Blogger Linky.

Now that I am a part of the military family community, I feel like today is a day of ghosts. I can’t see them but I can sense them surrounding the men and women who have served.  Even those who came back with their entire unit usually know others who made that ultimate sacrifice.  And it is not just their brothers and sisters in arms but the other lives they have seen snuffed out during their tours of duty. The living carry these ghosts and a sense of loss–even, or perhaps especially, in times of great joy.

Memorial Day always makes me think of this song my husband sang with his college classmates:

Stand to Your Glasses

We meet ‘neath the sounding rafters,
The walls around us bare;
As they shout back our peals of laughter;
It seems the dead are there.

So, stand by your glasses steady,
This world is a world of lies.
Here’s a health to the dead already;
And here’s to the next man who dies.

Cut off from the land that bore us,
Betayed by the land we find,
The good men have gone before us
Only the dull left behind

So, stand by your glasses steady,
This world is a world of lies.
Here’s a health to the dead already;
And here’s to the next man who dies.

There’s dew on the glass congealing,
‘Tis the Hurricane’s blasted breath.
It is thus that the warmth of feeling,
Grows cold in the grasp of death.

So, stand by your glasses steady,
This world is a world of lies.
Here’s a health to the dead already;
And here’s to the next man who dies.

Hopefully by now I have given birth to baby #3…so I would LOVE if you would help spread the word on your blogs, twitter, and facebook and also help support one another by reading and commenting on each other’s posts.

Here are a few posts I would like to highlight from last week’s linky. If you haven’t already, you might want to check them out and maybe leave a comment if something interests you!

Welcome to the Military Monday blogger link-up for May 16!

If luck is with me, I will give birth sometime in the in the next week. My children like to pick the least convenient times to show up.
