Travel Itinerary for the Week of September 5th!

Join us this Labour Day Monday for a post from Fire Crystals, our Kuwait-born mom who now lives in India. She loves reading, writing, computers, and of course, her family. She also loves eating food cooked in the kitchen, although she’s not too interested in its production! Come see what she has to say!

On Tuesday, we are in Ohio with Amy Hillis. Amy’s kids keep her on her toes, but she still manages to write and be an active advocate for organ transplant awareness, and she is in the process of resurrecting her inner artist! No matter what subject matter she chooses to write about, it is sure to keep you reading until the very last word and wishing there was more.

On Wednesday, we head over to Massachusetts with homeschooling (brave!) mom Courtney Cappallo. In her post, Courtney ponders the question of what actually constitutes a “bad” word. Is it the word itself or the manner in which it is used?

And on Thursday, we are off to Saudi Arabia to hear from Mama B. from her fascinating corner of the world, she likes to write candid accounts of the challenges of raising kids who are confident and independent. She has lots of great stories to share, so come on over for a good read!

On Friday Eva Fannon leads us in the Friday Question. Be sure to check it out and chime in with your answers!

In writer interviews this week, we will hear from Asta Burrows of Norway on Tuesday, and on Thursday we hear from new writer Frelle of North Carolina!

We need votes! World Moms Blog founder Jennifer Burden has been nominated as a Mom who is changing the world. To vote for her, click here. And we have been nominated for “Best All-Round Mom Blog” on Parents. Please vote for us here!

In other news this week, Amy Hillis had some of her artwork publicly exhibited for the first time since the loss of her son Nathaniel ten years ago. Congratulations, Amy!

Next weekend, one of our Canadian writers, Robin Farr, will be talking at an event about how blogging has helped with her recovery from post-partum depression. Good luck, Robin, and thank you for shedding light on an important issue that affects so many women!

CANADA: September and the Start of Something

For several weeks now, I’ve been reading tweets and blog posts from American moms whose kids are back in school already. “I keep getting emails about back-to-school-sales,” said one tweet this morning. “We’re already on the 4th week of school!”

Four weeks already?! It’s only just September!

This is something I’ve always found surprising. In Canada, teacher friends are back to work in mid-August, which I understand. (more…)
