San Antonio Mom Blogs - Life and Parenting in the Alamo City

Weekly Link Up for July 14 – 20, 2014

What San Antonio mom bloggers are writing about this week

A wide variety of posts, some funny, others moving, and many helpful, appeared on last week’s link up. Here are just a few of the highlights:

Folks on Twitter loved learning about Veronica’s weekly reading basket for kids when I shared her post there. Do you use a weekly reading basket for your kids? Veronica’s post tells you how it works & why it’s great.

Faith had a sweet post about the challenges of taking monthly baby photos of her son (who is now 10 months). Maybe you feel her pain?

I’m not a runner (OK, yes, that’s an understatement.), but Patti is. Her recent post contained an icy cold tip for runners that proved quite popular on Twitter.

And, who knew that a book about ways for kids to create and invent could change the lives of adults too: Stacy revealed 10 life lessons she picked up while reading Rachelle Doolery’s new book,  Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide for Little Inventors.

One last bit of San Antonio mom blogger news: Debi, who blogs at Time Now For Me, needs our help. She’s the organizer of San Antonio Code Jam, which takes place on September 20:

San Antonio Youth Code Jam is a free event for students 7 – 17 that makes coding fun, sociable and accessible.”

Although Code Jam is free for kids and parents to attend, it takes lots of sponsors and donors to keep it that way. If you contribute at least $18 to the San Antonio Code Jam on CrowdRise, two things will happen: 1) you’ll be entered into CrowdRise’s current contest to win an iPad Mini and, 2) your donation will be met by the 80/20 Foundation, up to $5,000. This is a great way to support kids and the future of technology here in our community. Visit the San Antonio Code Jam CrowdRise page for details.

Now it’s time of for the San Antonio Mom Blogs’ Weekly Link Up. Share your posts here all week long!
