kids playing at the lake

Have a great holiday weekend

For those of you in the States, I hope you have a lovely, relaxing weekend full of playing in the water, firing up the grill, and eating your share of guac. We’re taking it easy around these parts and counting down the days till school’s end (three and a half!).

• I like Kristen’s idea on handling screen time during the summer.

This is a fantastic student project video that got Pixar’s attention. Wait till the end.

• This just in: Americans waste 2 million hours annually figuring out where the tape roll starts.

• I teared up watching this graduation speech.

• In the mood to DIY this weekend? These are fun ideas to do with kids.

• And I’m excited that it’s almost time to start another Summer of Stories!

Also, heads up: this week the folks at Ultimate Bundles are doing a flash sale for the most recent bundle! That means on June 1 and 2, you can still snag Upstream Field Guide (plus tons more goodies) for half off its usual price. Get ready! (And add your email here if you’d like a notification when it’s live.)
