We enjoyed seeing your summer bucket lists yesterday. You have some great things planned, and we are totally stealing some of your ideas to do with our own families!

Keep your blog going strong this summer with the fun SITS Girls blogging challenge.

Stop The Summer Slump

Did you know that today is International Picnic Day? What a fun thing to celebrate! We love a good summer picnic with red and white checkered blankets and wicker baskets full of sandwiches, fruit, and cheese.

Day 4 Writing Prompt

Picnics are something every blogger can write about. Tell us a fun story about a picnic from your past. Share a recipe for a great picnic lunch item. Take your kids on a picnic, and give us a mostly wordless post with a few great pictures from the day. Write a short fiction piece about two people on a picnic. Share 5 tips for planning the perfect picnic. Have you read a book with a great picnic scene? Tell us about that book! Or get really creative and compare picnics to blogging, or social media (spammers = ants!).  You can do this!

Take the theme of International Picnic Day and make it fit into your blog.

    Thank you for hosting the summer slump link up this week. I am not sure if I will be able to complete the last day of posting. I just read that a former church member was one of the victims of the Charleston shooting last night. I just can’t seem to write at this time. Pray for our city.
