For the Kids Friday #9

So.... I'm trying to pack for our first trip to China.  We are leaving in the middle of the night to drive for 12 hours to Gramma and Papa's house so the kids can spend time with them while we are exploring our soon-to-be home.  Instead of getting ready for this trip, we've spent this last week getting our house ready to put up for sale.  Needless to say, this week has been insanely busy!

Because of that, I haven't been the best host.  I didn't have a chance to check out each link from last week, and I feel bad about that.  I did go through and select my top picks for the week.  Thanks again for all of you who come to link up each week!  I just LOVE seeing what you all are doing, and it is a great place for inspiration!  You are all amazing!!!

Here are my picks for this week... Wow!  What awesome ideas!
